GIVIT is an Aussie charity helping out in times of crisis. Due to the bushfires, back in January, Camilla gave a 'generous donation' (the term used on Channel 7). Two weeks ago she was made the royal patron and last week she had this video conference.
In the conference she said how much she loved Australia and areas she would still like to see (although we didn't get to see or hear that). Of course there are no overseas visits on the horizon for any royals for the rest of this year (and given the closed borders into Australia probably not until the second half of next year either given our PM has suggested July 2021 before Aussies can think about travelling overseas. We wouldn't take too kindly to having people allowed to come here when we can't leave).
The main point is that this is Camilla's first Aussie patronage.
Good to hear, thank you for sharing.
