Royals Ballet Patron? or President?

im sure about Royals who been attend Ballets? if Patrons or President?

Princess Diana really like watch rehearsals because she is popular Princess you know she is patrons of ballets they later till she died Prince Andrew got patrons for Princess Diana.

Countess of Wessex is Patron? for Ballet she attend watch rehearsal ballet since she was little girls.

if you have post pictures of Princess Diana and Countess of Wessex at ballet as Patrons or President.

please post all Royals who been attend Ballets as Patrons or president

i remind i read books or computer Princess Margaret attend Ballet because she is Patrons also.

I think that Princess Astrid of Belgium is the President of the Belgian Red Cross

Edit:
I'm sure now:

Quote:
La Princesse Astrid est présidente de la Croix-Rouge de Belgique depuis 1994, succédant ainsi à son père.
From Monarchie.be

The, King Albert II, also was president of the Belgian Red Cross.

Not Patron or President, but...

Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnusson of Sweden was the working Chairman of the Swedish Red Cross 1993-2001, and member of the Standing Comission of the Red Cross and Red Crescent in Geneva 1995-2003.

King Carl XVI Gustaf is the Protector of the Swedish Red Cross.

Queen Sonja of Norway was sitting as vice-president of the Norwegian Red Cross. And she is still involved in the United World Red Cross College in Norway.

I have just read on the Prince of Wales's website,it's right that Prince Charles is President of British Red Cross since 13th Feb 2003.
I think Princess Diana used to be British Red Cross Patron, wasn't she?
And i also found out that Queen Elizabeth II is also Patron of The British Red Cross Society and The Australian Red Cross Society.But the Patron and the President,who is higher, can anyone tell me?
Thanks,

I'm not sure about the difference between patron and president. The president is the head. I think the patron holds an honorary position, he/her is a kind of supporter of the organisation.

No. As far as I can see, none of them are involved with it at all, at least not directly. I can't find a list over Princess Astrid's, though.

It seems that the Norwegian national ballet falls under the Norwegian Opera, which is one of Sonja's protectorates.

Royals and their charity work

There seems to be so much made of the royals and the charity work they do, or lack of it according to some that feel they are not doing enough.

My questions to all of you that have a problem with what they are doing. Do you do charity work in your own community? If not, how come you can condemn someone that is at leasting trying to do something to help others. Why do you feel like what they are doing is not meant for the good of the charity they are trying to help? Their presence, or endorsement brings many dollars and recognition to these diseases.

There was a question on why CP Mary was smiling at a cancer event. Being a cancer victim/survivor I do not think smiling is wrong to do. We are not dead, we just have cancer. We still enjoy smiling and laughing. Cancer is not our entire life. Just a small blip in our life plans.

There has also been questions on how they dress for the events they attend. I find it wonderful of them to support and endorse these events. I am sure they will dress how they feel it is necessary for whatever event they are attending. Seeing Mary playing with the kids and having a good time is not in anyway out of line. She needs to be applauded for her time and effort in helping others. She dressed down for the kids. For the other events she dresses how a royal princess supporting her country should dress supporting a charity or foundation she believes in.

dee4855 I think this debate is needed. I agree that for some reason, a few people feel that they can condemn while not actually knowing the percentage of time and effort that a royal puts into their charity work. I personally do quite a bit of volunteering which was preached into me by parents. Quite a good bit of this work is done on the phone, studying the actual charity (to see if I agree with their philosophy, etc.) before getting involved and driving to meetings. Found that there are quite a few that sounds really good but just politically correct silliness.

I have to feel that Mary (and others) think long and hard before taking on something. They will be the one that others come to see and by being there more money can be generated.

I do believe that there are just some royals that others are just jealous of and no matter what they might do, it will never be enough. I don't understand the reaction, especially someone from another country. That royal can't possibly be of any significance to their life, so why the envy?
