The University of Nottingham mourns the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the United Kingdom’s longest serving monarch, died peacefully on Thursday afternoon, local time, at Balmoral Castle.

The Provost and CEO of the University of Nottingham Malaysia, Professor Sarah Metcalfe, has conveyed her profound sadness on behalf of the university on the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

Professor Sarah Metcalfe said: “All of us at the Malaysian campus join the Royal Family and the world in mourning the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen was a global symbol for peace and grace, steering the monarchy, UK and Commonwealth through seventy years of extraordinary change. Her dedication and service was an example to us all."
