Princess Anne was handed an honorary degree by her sister-in-law Camilla, known as the Duchess of Rothesay when in Scotland, Tuesday.
The ceremony took place at the University of Aberdeen, where Camilla is the chancellor.
Camilla conferred upon the princess royal an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws “in recognition of her contribution to public life.”
The uni said:
Camilla, who became the school’s chancellor back in 2013, added of Anne, who is the chancellor of the University of Edinburgh, according to the BBC: “Ladies and gentlemen, we shall have no talk of rivalry today.
“But I might just casually observe that, while we are to celebrate our 525th birthday next month, the University of Edinburgh is comparatively youthful – a mere 437 years old.”
Anne is a patron of Save the Children; she’s also involved with a number of other organizations.
The ceremony was attended by around 400 guests, including university alumni, staff, students, industry leaders, and supporters of the institution and the royals.
