Prince Andrew, Duke of York, was recently installed as chancellor of the University of Huddersfield, succeeding Sit Patrick Stewart, who was held the position since 2004. Prince Andrew was also conferred an honorary doctorate for his tireless efforts to promote entrepreneurship.
The Queen’s second son has been the institution's patron since 2013, opening the Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Centre the same year and has actively taken part in numerous events in the university for over a decade.
Vice-chancellor Professor Bob Cryan praised the duke for his constant support to the university, saying: "His Royal Highness has a natural ally in the University of Huddersfield, where entrepreneurialism is an essential component of our education and our philosophy."
