The Principal said, "I was absolutely delighted to receive this honour. It was a great privilege to meet Prince Charles and to share what was a very special day with my family.

"In many ways though this an award for the hard work and commitment from colleagues, students and alumni from the whole of the University of Glasgow as much as it for me.”
