the 25 Charities update

In December, the Queen announced that she was relinquishing 25 of her patronages.  As of February 14, all but one have announced their new patron.  The exception is the Sport and Recreation Alliance

Holocaust Day Memorial Trust    (HRH The Prince of Wales)

Royal Institution of Great Britain   - (HRH The Prince of Wales)

Wildfowl and WetlandsTrust   (HRH The Prince of Wales)

 Battersea Dogs and Cats Home  (HRH The Duchess of Cornwall)

 Barnardo's  (HRH The Duchess of Cornwall.)

Royal School of Needlework.  (HRH Duchess of Cornwall)

Royal African Society  (HRH The Duke of Cambridge)

Welsh Rugby Union   (HRH The Duke of Cambridge)

Amateur Swimming Association  (HRH The Duke of Cambridge)

Action for Children   (HRH The Duchess of Cambridge)

All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC)   (HRH the Duchess of Cambridge)

Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Association (LTA)  (HRH The Duchess of Cambridge)

Blind Veterans UK  (HRH The Countess of Wessex)

 Rugby Football Union   (HRH Prince Henry of Wales)

Rugby Football League  (HRH Prince Henry of Wales)

 Edinburgh International Festival (HRH The Earl of Wessex)

Sport and Recreation Alliance  HRH The Earl of Wessex is president, so perhaps he will become the patron.

British Cycling Federation   (HRH The Countess of Wessex)

NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children)  (HRH The Countess of Wessex)

Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children's Fund  (HRH The Duke of York)

British Science Association ((HRH Duke of York)

Institution of Civil Engineers (HRH The Duke of York)

 Animal Health Trust    ( HRH The Princess Royal)

Royal Geographical Society  (HRH The Princess Royal)

Save the Children UK   - (HRH the Princess Royal)  The Princess remains the president as well, but perhaps, in time, a younger member of the royal family will take over the presidency.  The position of president would be a perfect opportunity for one of the York princesses.

I am surprised that none of these charities were given to the poor York Princesses. No wonder Andy Pandy got upset !!, I would too.

The York princesses are not working royals. They have their own patronages, but these are not included in the official charities database on the monarchy's website
