A FORMER master at Prince William and Harry’s old school has denied accusations he killed his mum.
Ex-Eton teacher Matthew Corry, 45, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to the killing of his mother Beatrice Corry, 84.
The teacher lived with his mother in her apartment at a converted grammar school at the time of her death.
Police were called to posh market town Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, around 12.30am on January 6 this year after Beatrice was found with head injuries.
During a hearing at at Bristol Crown Court this morning, Corry formally submitted his not guilty plea to one charge of murder.
Prosecutors said they were now waiting for further psychiatric reports before the crown decided how to proceed with the case.
Corry was remanded in custody ahead of his next appearance, which was listed for 7 June this year.
A provisional trial date has been set for 3 July at Bristol Crown Court.
Beatrice Corry was a retired teacher and was an award-winning volunteer at the Campden Home Nursing charity shop.
Paying tribute at the time of her death, CEO Helen Makaritis said: “Beatrice was an incredible lady, she had so much energy and would regularly have completed a five mile walk before her shift in the shop.
“Described as a ‘force of nature’ by the shop team, she was always positive and never afraid to voice her opinion, a very intelligent lady who was knowledgeable about so many things.
“Never without a scarf or a twinkle in her eye, she was loved by us all.”
Corry taught at Eton, where both princes studied, until 2008 when he moved on to a prep school in Oxford.
He is also believed to have taught at a boarding school in Cumbria and at Godolphin and Latymer, in West London.
The independent girls’ school in Hammersmith counts Boris Johnson’s wife Carrie Johnson, singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor and celebrity cook Nigella Lawson among its alumni.
Corry left his post as biology teacher at Godolphin and Latymer, where fees this academic year cost £24,708, in April 2020.
