Central receives royal title as part of diamond jubilee

The Central School of Speech and Drama has been awarded with a royal title by the Queen. She presented the performing arts school with the prestigious honour as one of the final gestures of her Diamond Jubilee year.

Central’s royal patron Princess Alexandra said: ‘The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama holds a very special place in Britain’s achievements in the dramatic arts. One thinks of so many great actors who have benefitted from Central’s training and preparation, but the school is so much more besides. It is a school which embraces the widest range of skills needed in the diverse profession of theatrical, film and broadcast arts.’
