The Convocation of the Fellowship of the Royal Society is held once every 50 years.

This year the society is celebrating its 350th anniversary with See Further, a 10-day science festival at Southbank Centre.

As part of the convocation Prince William was admitted as a fellow of the society.

A specially commissioned fanfare by Julian Anderson was played by members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra as the royal party entered the Royal Festival Hall auditorium.
