Calendar Interview Following the disruption to his year in office, the present Master is serving a second year and he is attending more meetings – both virtual and in the Hall.  The Company was saddened by the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, who was an honorary Member of the Company.  He had made several visits to the Hall, the first being in 1954, with her Majesty the Queen.  The Master was interviewed on ITV Calendar to comment on the Duke’s involvement with the Company.  The Master stands in front of  an unfinished portrait of Prince Philip.   The national situation is improving and the Company’s work will begin to return to normal.  During the
