Royal Appearances: A Degree & Stained Glass Window

As the nation prepares for Remembrance Sunday, we take a look at the The Queen & Prince Philip's recent public appearances


On Sunday 11th November, royalty and the public will once again come together to remember all those who have fallen whilst serving in the British Armed Forces. The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal was launched a week or so ago.

 

As always, The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will be joining numerous services on the day and leading up to it. However, most recently they have been busy with making two public appearances.

 

Firstly, Prince Philip enjoyed a fun return to university to collect an honorary degree in recognition of naval service from Plymouth University. Philip officially open the university's new £19 million marine building, on 30 October. Hewas given a full tour of the building, he seemed to take a keen interest and be in high spirits.

 

Two days later, on 1 November, he joined The Queen to unveil a stained glass window in honour of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee. The window in the Chapel of Savoy, London contains a depiction of The Queen riding a horse accompanied by a corgi. It also contains symbols of The Church of England, The Armed Forced and the Commonwealth.
