Royal Patronage

royals are usually patrons of so many charity organisations. what do they do for them? help them raise money or do they have to donate money to be a patron?

I think that the biggest thing a patron does is give publicity to the charity. When a royal attends a gala fund raiser, or makes a visit to a charity, that gives the charity publicity and raises awareness. Also when a royal attends a fundraiser people might be likely to pay more money and more people might come.

If you look at the Prince of Wales website they have case studies under each person and you can see how the charites that they are affiliated with (either as founders or Patrons) help people

http://www.princeofwales.gov.uk/pers...les/index.html

There was also an article in Insight about what Patrons do

What patronages or organisations would you like to see Royals support?

Seeing as there are so many different organisations out there, I was wondering if there are any charities or groups that people think a Royal should support and why?

I would love to see royals do real lobby work for animal rights, notably working against the present disgraceful EU rules for transport of animals for slaughter across Europe - for hours and hours on end without food or water.
I wouldn't mind if these activities transgressed the rules of being non-political that applies to most royals.

I would like more Royals involved in Microcredit Programs. Many Royals already are, which only emphasizes the importance of the Program. But more popular names would always be welcomed.

Other important Programs, in my opinion, are Enviromental Programs. I think only Prince Charles and Prince Albert are seriously involved in them (forgive me if I'm wrong). This is an issue that, imo, needs as much support as possible, especially from those, who are in position of power/influence.

I tend not to rate animal charities in my own list of priorities. However, do you have any details, as I was under the impression the EU had revised the rules for transport?

Theoretically I think the different patronages of the various royals cover most.
And what I consider important, they (at least a good many) reflect what is important to the particular country or the royal.
eg. WA-Netherlands-watermanagement or immigration issues for Maxima and Mary. As well as childrens nutrition and obesity start to become issues in northern Europe and for ex. Mary has taken up that patronage in Denmark.
I would love for Frederic of Denmark to take up something on environmental issues, considering that Greenland as part of Denmark is in particular danger. (But than I would actually love for Frederic to take up any topic at all that is not related to his sports hobbies and that he indeed persues in earnest.)

It seems that a Danish proposal for a minimum transportation time of 8 hours will not go through - even though there does seem to be more awareness of the conditions of animal transportation within the EU.
I am not generally more 'into' animal rights than rights for human beings - but I do feel that our treatment of slaughter animals are often unbelievably unethical and cruel - and would be a worthy cause for royal attention.

Personally I like it best when the royals are supporting a cause of (weaker) groups in society that are in minority/ under 'fire' etc. Like unemployed youngsters, immigrants, elderly, illiterate etc.
Though it is admirable that many royals are active internationally I think that the focus should always stay on the national interest firstly, and secondly on the international issues.
I also do not usually like economic missions, which makes these royals seem like a glorified marketing/PR manager.

I wasn't aware of the Danish proposals, I can recall protests in the mid-90's here regarding animal transportation. I just assumed it was dealt with as you hear so little about it now.

I suppose I share your viewpoint because while animal charities aren't the first I think of, the conditions some are kept in can be very cruel.

I'm not sure if members of the British Royal Family are involved with similar charities, if not I think this could be a good candidate.

Personal debt is growing in the UK and the number declaring themselves bankrupt is at its highest ever. A Royal patron may well boost the profile.

That is happening everywhere in the Western world, sadly. It would be great to see any royal getting involved in such a less-traditional cause.

I agree, Marengo, especially as it is a problem. Admittedly it's not as glamorous or trendy as other causes but it is equally important.

I agree, I've read several articles that paint a very grim picture for the future of Greenland, as the future king I think it's vital for Fred to take up such a cause.

Serious, heavy-duty environmental issues and human trafficking.

If I had that much power, I would actually try and use it to accomplish something. I am always sort of sad to notice that most royals prefer light-weight, non-populistic issues (like, pardon me, the microcredit). I for example like Prince Charles for speaking out for the environment - even if it doesn't improve his popularity.


What I have also noticed is that most royal women support "soft" issues, while royal men are more into environment and heavies things. I just cannot believe we are still that sexist.

Priority today is to support something against social exclusion. I wish some of the Royals could work for the unity of the family, and the improvement of the education...oh, and of course they could also support any organization who cares about homeless or people lossing their jobs. These are our forgotten people. Royal must think about them.

What's lightweight about microcredit? It's an incredibly important issue in the developing world and has helped change the lives of millions of people.

I think your last comment is very true, I know Diana was very involved with charities for the homeless. I'm not sure if any of the other Royals are though.
