The College was pleased to welcome The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall on Tuesday 29 November as part of their visit to the University of Cambridge. Their Royal Highnesses visited Cambridge to mark the bicentenary of the Fitzwilliam Museum and to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the Cambridge University Library.

After their visit to the Fitzwilliam museum, The Prince and The Duchess visited King’s College Chapel to attend a Choir rehearsal. They were escorted to the Chapel by the Provost and greeted by the Dean, The Rev Dr Stephen Cherry

The Choir sang excerpts from music chosen by the Director of Music, Dr Stephen Cleobury: “I was Glad” by Parry and “Gabriel’s Message”, a Basque carol written by Sabine Baring-Gould and arranged by Edgar Pettman.

After enjoying the rehearsal, the royal couple met members of the College and Choir, and posed for a group photograph with the Choir at the Sanctuary.

The Prince of Wales attended Trinity College (1970) and is also a Patron of the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust.
