On the 30 April 2014, Her Majesty The Queen, Patron of UWC Atlantic College and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh visited UWC Atlantic College.
Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh were welcomed at the gates of St Donat's Castle by Chair of Board of Governors at UWC Atlantic College, Stephen Cox CVO, the college Principal, John Walmsley, and by Dr Peter Beck, Lord Lieutenant of South Glamorgan, together with other civic dignitaries.
Following a bespoke performance by the students' a cappella choir and the unveiling of a commemorative plaque, the visitors met with representatives of the college's student body and visited an exhibition of student work and life at UWC Atlantic College.
The student exhibition took place in a marquee on the top lawn. Students from all around the world came together to help celebrate the visit, share the occasion and demonstrate life and learning at the college.
