The Royal Foundation Meghan as Patron
Since : May 2018
Following her engagement to Prince Harry in 2017, Meghan has become involved in the work of the Foundation, and became its fourth patron following her marriage, on 19 May 2018. The Royal Foundation programmes currently revolve around four main themes of work; mental health, wildlife and conservation, young people and the armed forces community.
On a trip to the Warrior Games in the USA in 2013, Prince Harry saw first-hand how the power of sport can help physically, psychologically and socially those suffering from injuries and illness. He was inspired by his visit and the Invictus Games was born. The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and personifies what these tenacious men and women can achieve post injury. The Games harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.
