Making waves! Clinton walked in a procession and wore a traditional graduation robe, which she accessorized with a black velvet hat and a navy face mask.

The Oxford Student explained that she was being given the honor "for her five decades in public service as an advocate, attorney, activist, and volunteer, as well as her positions as First Lady of the United States, First Lady of Arkansas, the 67th United States Secretary of State, and as a presidential candidate."

After the celebration concluded, attendees made their way to a lunch and garden party.

Clinton has been spending a few days overseas, and on September 24, she'll be named as the 11th Chancellor of Queen's University Belfast. The advocate was actually given the honor last year, but a ceremony wasn't able to take place due to the pandemic.

"It’s my great privilege to become @QUBelfast‘s 11th — and first female — chancellor," she tweeted in 2020. "It’s a place I have great fondness for and have grown a strong relationship with over the years, and I’m proud to be an ambassador for its excellence."
