Question Academic Dress

I don't know if I remember well, or it's just my imagination, or I'm confusing faces. But I think several years ago I saw a picture of Christine in academic dress (I specifically remember the hat), and she was smiling and kind of celebrating, like a typical graduation shot.

Does anybody rememver the same? What had she studied? Was it a course, a career, etc.? As a I remember, it wasn't from her youth. Actually it could be a photo of the 80s or her post The Dance years.

Well, in 2000 she received an honorary doctorate from the University of Greenwich. Greenwich is a bit of a crappy university here in the UK, but itís still nice for her to be recognised for her services to music.

I haven't seen it before. Her impersonation of Mrs. Scarrot, maybe?!

Yep I remember this. Was very proud, as when she won the Ivor lifetime achievement award years later.

I remember it, too. There was another, much better pic of her in that regalia, but I donít know where to find it.
