The Royal Foundation

The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry was legally established in September 2009 and became fully operational in 2011.

Along with The Duchess of Cambridge who is now officially a Patron, they intend to use the Foundation as the main vehicle for their philanthropic activities.

The Foundation hopes to become a leading philanthropic investor, effectively using its time and resources to create lasting change in targeted areas and geographies, based on need and on the interests of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

The Foundation will seek to invest in, or partner with, organisations with proven impact, using its profile and leverage to create a multiplier effect in resources, outcomes and knowledge.

Areas of Focus

Although their Foundation is not limited to these three areas of focus, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry aim to make the following their early areas of focus:

  1. Armed Forces - Promoting the welfare of those who are serving or who have served their country in the Armed Forces

  2. Young People - Helping children and young people to build their skills, confidence and aspirations.

  3. Conservation - Supporting communities to protect and conserve their natural resources for future generations.
