Princess Eugenie’s charities to be represented at her wedding

With less than 24 hours to go until the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank at Windsor, more details of the big day have been shared by the Royal Family.

Representatives from several charities close to the couple’s hearts will have representatives at Windsor for the wedding. They will join 1,200 people who won tickets in a ballot to be inside the precincts of the castle and see the bride, groom, family and friends arrive and depart for the wedding at St. George’s Chapel.

Several organisations of which Princess Eugenie is patron feature on the list. They include the Teenage Cancer Trust, the Big Cat Sanctuary in Kent and water, an organisation which works to bring safe drinking water to people across developing countries as well as Elephant Family, working to protect Asian elephants in their own environment.

The Print Room, which encourages writing and performance by new artists, will also be represented as will Tate Young Patrons which focuses on conservation and education in the arts world. Eugenie is patron at both those organisations, too.

There are also invitations for several charities with which the princess has worked. The Salvation Army will be involved after Eugenie gave her support to its ‘’Campaign to Stop Modern Slavery’’. Just last month, Eugenie spent time in Serbia to see the work being done by the United Nations to support those affected by human trafficking and among charity representatives at the wedding will be people from the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women. Project 0, which focuses on cutting plastic waste, will also be represented – the princess is an ambassador for the charity.

There is very much a family feel to this wedding and several organisations supported by the whole York clan have also been invited. Street Child, which helps provide educational opportunities to children in even the toughest circumstances, will be there – this year, it merged with Children in Crisis, the charity set up by Sarah, Duchess of York and supported by both her daughters.

Another York family initiative, Key to Freedom, has also been invited. Key to Freedom looks for markets for products made by the Women’s Interlink Foundation, which provides women in West Bengal with the chance to learn skills to earn an income. The

Jack Brooksbank’s father, George, is an Executive Director of the charity, Supporting Wounded Veterans, and representatives from that organisation will also be at Windsor for the wedding. The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, where Princess Eugenie was treated for scoliosis, has also been invited.
