Charities Publicly Support Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan After They Give Up Royal Patronages

After being forced to leave behind a number of their royal patronages, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are closing the door on their royal lives with a lighter load. But, despite the joint loss of eight royal roles, the support from the remaining British charities and organizations in their lives is stronger than ever.

“We can all live a life of service,” the Sussexes said in a February 19 statement. “Service is universal.” That service includes continuing to work closely with their remaining private patronages—all of whom tell that they’re excited about the couple’s future.

For Meghan, this includes animal welfare charity, Mayhew, and Smart Works, which helps empower disadvantaged women back into the work place. Prince Harry will continue with his roles as patron for the Invictus Games Foundation, children’s charity WellChild, the London Marathon Charitable Trust and Rhino Conservation Botswana.

CEO of the Mayhew, Caroline Yates, tells BAZAAR that the charity, which Meghan became patron of in January 2019, is excited to continue their relationship with the duchess. “We are very proud to have the Duchess of Sussex as our patron, and are so pleased with the positive impact she has had on Mayhew over the past two years,” says Yates.
