 Buckingham Palace has been undergoing an examination of the late Queen Elizabeth II's patronages.  In the last two weeks, the palace has announced several charities and organizations passed to King Charles II or Queen Camilla.

One of the organizations is the Royal Ballet.  In 2003, the then Prince of Wales succeeded his aunt, Princess Margaret as President of the Royal Ballet.  Princess Margaret's daughter, Lady Sarah Chatto, was named the Royal Ballet's Vice President the following year.

King Charles III has accepted the patronage of the Royal Ballet.  Lady Sarah Chatto has become the ballet's President.   Lady Sarah is the Vice President of the Royal Drawing School and Patron of the Frederick Ashton Foundation.

“I am absolutely delighted that The Lady Sarah Chatto has agreed to accept the position of President of The Royal Ballet. As a long-standing and close friend of the Company, we are all deeply grateful that she will continue her dedicated care and support as our new President," said the Royal Ballet's director. Kevin O'Hare.
