Under the theme ‘Making a Difference Together,’ the event also showcased the programmes run or initiated by The Royal Foundation, and will include a number of delegates who have been involved in key projects. The Royal Foundation's programmes to date include Heads Together, the Invictus Games, and United for Wildlife.
Launched in 2011, The Royal Foundation was set up by The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry as the main vehicle to pursue their charitable and philanthropic interests. Once The Duchess of Cambridge became Patron, Their Royal Highnesses established a key focus of working together, as well as convening others to help tackle society's biggest challenges.
Since then, The Royal Foundation has grown significantly, making a difference in communities across the UK and beyond.
