HM Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022)

A statement from Fitzwilliam College, following the death of HM The Queen

Fitzwilliam College is deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty the Queen.

The Master, Baroness Morgan, said: “Her Majesty the Queen gave a lifetime of service. For 70 years, she was a constant, a marker of stability, of dignity in public office. For every one of us currently working and studying at Fitzwilliam, from our incoming Freshers to our Fellowship, we have known no other monarch.”

The College Chapel is open to all members of the College community for those who wish to pause and reflect. Books of Condolence will shortly be available both in College, and to the wider public in Great St Mary's, the University Church.
