Accession of King Charles III – Vice-Chancellor statement

King Charles III web

On behalf of the University of Reading, I welcome the proclamation of the accession of His Majesty King Charles III as a symbol of hope and stability, as we mourn the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

In a world of constant change, we know that King Charles will bring the same dedication and unifying presence that we have experienced for the last 70 years. He will undoubtedly work to advance those causes of progress, prosperity and the advancement of knowledge that Queen Elizabeth held dear. In addition to these, we share King Charles’s life-long commitment to the preservation of our planet as the defining issue facing our world today.

To mark the proclamation, flags on our campuses will be flown at full mast until 1.00pm tomorrow, Sunday, when they will return to being flown at half mast for the duration of the national period of mourning.

Our connection with King Charles as the Visitor of the University of Reading under our Charter is a source of immense pride and we look forward to a long and constructive relationship with His Majesty.

Long may he reign.

Professor Robert Van de Noort
Vice-Chancellor, University of Reading
