The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry is the Patrons’ primary charitable vehicle, and 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.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will also aim to use their Foundation to respond to other needs and opportunities although at this point the Foundation is unable to accept unsolicited requests for support.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry aim to make the following their early priorities: Armed Forces, Young People, Conservation, and Mental Health.
It is our assumption that once Meghan marries Prince Harry in 2018, she will also become a part of The Royal Foundation and any charities she takes interest in will be included into The Royal Foundation. We also believe that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will share their interest in charities and organizations that are close to their hearts with Meghan, for example the Heads Together Campaign.
