Our Royal Patron

Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales is Patron of Evelina London

Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales became a Patron of Evelina London on Tuesday 11 December 2018.

Having seen first-hand the impact that comprehensive care and support can have upon young children, Her Royal Highness’s patronage provides an opportunity to champion those working on the front-line in children’s healthcare, and shine a light on their work supporting children in their early years.

Marian Ridley, Director of Evelina London, said: “We are hugely proud and honoured The Duchess of Cambridge has chosen to become our Patron.

“The Duchess shares our passion for giving children and young people the very best start in life and Her Royal Highness’ support will help champion the life-saving care our staff are providing to our patients.

"The Duke and Duchess have a very special connection to Evelina London and their warmth, charm and sympathy have brought enormous joy to our staff and families whenever they’ve visited.”

In 2020, The Princess of Wales launched the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood to highlight awareness of the impact a child’s earliest years has on their whole life and on society as a whole. Its focus is on sharing research, awareness campaigns and working with people from across all sectors to collaborate on new solutions.
