Following His Majesty The King’s Accession, the Royal Household is conducting a review of Royal Patronage. The review will cover the organisations of which Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was Patron and those organisations to which The King and The Queen Consort were connected through Patronage or Presidency as Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
Members of the Royal Family have links with hundreds of charities, military associations, professional bodies and public service organisations. Some are well known, while others may be smaller bodies working in a very specialist area or on a local basis only.
Having a Royal patron or president provides vital publicity for the work of these organisations, and allows their enormous achievements and contributions to society to be recognised.
You can use this database to find the organisations with which members of the Royal Family are associated.

Leicester Cathedral's King Richard III AppealWebsite: www.kingrichardinleicester.com
You will have read that the Judicial Review found in Leicester's favour. We of course are delighted, but we do realise that there is a limited time in which the Plantagenet Group can appeal, but we do not feel this is likely to happen. As a result we can now continue to plan for the re-internment of Richard III for March 2015.Region: UK (England)Members of the Royal Family:The Duke of Gloucester, Patron
