The Earl of Wessex is delighted to have been asked by The Duke of Edinburgh to become the Royal Patron of London Youth, the Duke’s patronage since 1947.

HRH has long been a champion of youth causes through his charities and patronages and is a leading advocate of the role of non-formal education and learning in young people’s personal development to realise their potential. HRH looks forward to playing a strong role in supporting young Londoners over the coming years.
