William, Catherine, & Harry support the Queen's Patronages

On this blog we have lists of WilliamCatherine and Harry's patronages (with a description of each charity and organization), but as they are taking on more royal duties, they are also helping the Queen support her patronages.

The Queen is patron of over 600+ charities. She tries to support as many worthy causes as she can, but is unable to give them all the individualized attention they deserve. Often she calls upon other members of her family to attend events for her patronages on her behalf.

Now while it would be impossible, impractical, & frivolous to try to list all 600+ of the Queen's Patronages, I do think they do deserve recognition and focus. And since this blog mainly catalogs William, Catherine and Harry's official duties we thought we would list the ones they have supported (We are mainly going to focus on patronages supported from this point on. So, we will update as they have official engagements with one of the Queen's Patronages).

We expect to see William, Catherine and Harry do even more with the Queen's Patronages in the coming year. Next year on 12th June, a giant street party, "The Patron's Lunch", will be held on the Mall to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday and her 600+ Patronages. William and Harry are joint Patrons of this event.

This list is of Queen Elizabeth's Patronages that William, Catherine and Harry have supported:
