The Lady in Waiting to The Princess Royal wrote to Principal Peter Kopelman last week to thank him for the warm welcome to St George's on 28 February.
In her letter (see picture gallery) the Lady in Waiting said: "As Chancellor of the University of London, Her Royal Highness was delighted to have the opportunity to open the superb new facilities. It was an interesting and informative visit, particularly to view the hide of Blossom! Who would have predicted the huge medical advances she bequeathed to the world. The INTO SGUL Centre is a place of excellence with outstanding resources for the enthusiastic students."
She added: " I have been asked to send you The Princess's best wishes and to thank you for a most enjoyable visit."
