18th October 2017 | Royal Visits to Surrey

HRH The Princess Royal visits Royal Holloway, University of London, opening Emily Wilding Davidson building.

HRH The Princess Royal visited Royal Holloway, University of London, in her capacity as Chancellor of the University of London, to formally open the new library and student services centre building. Built at a cost of £57 million and with 12.8 kilometres of shelving, the state-of the-art library has been named in honour of one of Britain’s most famous suffragettes (and Royal Holloway alumna) Emily Wilding Davison. At the opening, The Princess Royal also presented students from the Royal Holloway Community Action volunteering scheme with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2017 (above left). This award – the equivalent of an MBE for volunteer groups – recognised the work of some 3,000 volunteering students in helping build strong communities and leading projects to support local organisations.
