Ex-Archbishop of Canterbury admitted as new Master of Magdalene

Last month, the ex-Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Rowan Williams was admitted as the new Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge University. Lord Williams was the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury from 2002 until 2012, which is the highest ranking post in the Anglican Church. Among his many duties, he is perhaps best known to a global audience as the man who married Kate and William at Westminster Abbey!

Lord Williams is now the official figurehead of Magdalene College. The Master of a Cambridge College officiates at all the official ceremonies and heads the Governing Body (a collection of Fellows who look after the running of the college).

A full report of the ceremony and more information about the new Master and his duties can be found here: Press Release from Magdalene College.
