In 2020, The Princess Royal was the final guest on Save with Children's Save with Stories campaign, launched to raise urgent funds for the children and families who had been hardest hit by the Coronavirus crisis, both in the UK and around the world - watch the video below;
The Princess Royal spends a significant amount of time visiting Save the Children’s projects, both overseas and in the UK. Most recently, she has travelled to Bangladesh, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Mozambique, Ethiopia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Her Royal Highness says of her work:
"I am proud of my long association with Save the Children, and I am honoured to succeed Her Majesty as its Patron. It is an organisation that embodies a spirit of compassion, openness and excellence. Its values are an inspiration; its achievements, a source of hope for millions of children.
"From significantly reducing malnutrition in some of the poorest parts of Bangladesh to sheltering, feeding and vaccinating the young people affected by the devastating winds and rain of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and ensuring children in the UK leave primary school reading competently and able to fulfil their potential, their efforts to ensure that every child survives to live a happy, healthy life are outstanding.”
In addition to visiting teams around the world, Her Royal Highness regularly meets fundraisers and volunteers, and visits our shops around the UK. She also attends and speaks at many of our special events.
Over the last five decades, The Princess Royal’s work with Save the Children has given her great insight into the needs of children worldwide. In 1990, it inspired President Kaunda of Zambia to nominate her for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Patron's Fund
Launched in honour of the Princess Royal’s 50 years as Patron of Save the Children, the Patron’s Fund is dedicated to raising flexible funds.
In October 2019, Her Royal Highness held a special Centenary Dinner at Buckingham Palace, providing the platform to officially launch the Patron’s Fund. The Princess Royal made a personal ask to those who attended, to support children and families in the best way possible – with a flexible gift to the Patron’s Fund.
