I'm probably the only one interested in all this, partly because my job includes assessment of financials.
nope - I was geeky enough to read all of that as well. Its a very interesting and clean structure. As for the staff being underwrote by private donation... wouldnt surprise me if it was William and Harry themselves to keep the foundation squeaky clean of admin costs.

I noticed how lacking the conservation portion was on the website - so interesting that there in a new initative to be announced. I wonder if contributions to Tusk will fall into that category. gets a bit tricky with the patronages and the other foundations (i.e. Sentenbale).

But I do think they have a cohesive message on where they plan to focus their efforts and resources.

I just sent the foundation an email and asked them about the logo. We will see if we get an answer.

They chose wonderful photos for the web pages!

The reply came from the Royal Foundation early this AM. They explained that the name change reflected The Duchess of Cambridge's role as patron. Emmy, from the foundation explained the Duke, Duchess and Prince are "equally involved" in the endeavor.

Furthermore, Emmy of the foundation wrote, "The brand is based on a lower case ‘r’ and ‘f’ to represent the initials of the Royal Foundation with the coronet that is usually seen above TRH’s ciphers, to bring a mixture of both contemporary and traditional elements in the design."

They hope we enjoy visiting the site.

Thank you, AdmirerUS, for contacting the Foundation to ask the question. Good on you for getting it straight from the horse's mouth as we say.

That has to be the first time in history that I've actually read a cipher correctly.

You seem almost as surprised as me, Michelle! I think I'll retire from reading ciphers now; quit while I'm ahead.

I felt as if I was reading one of those hidden images (or an ultrasound) .. I can see the 'r'... just cant see the 'f'

in the immortal words of Rachel Green: I can't see it!

I haven't been able to pin down a time yet, but it looks like it will be in the morning - so before they welcome the Olympic Torch to Buckingham Palace.

ETA: Just read that the event starts at 11:30.

It's an Olympic event so I guess in the Olympic thread, when the Queen met the torch the pictures went to that thread I believe. :)
