Following a major review of more than 1000 royal patronages and charity presidencies, and marking the first anniversary of the coronation, The Printing Charity has announced that His Majesty King Charles has accepted the role of patron. This role was previously held by the late Queen Elizabeth.


Neil Lovell, Printing Charity CEO, said: ‘We are really delighted and honoured that His Majesty has agreed to be our charity patron.


‘His Majesty’s patronage is incredibly important to us, not just because of our long association with the royal family, but as recognition of the work we do and services we offer for people who work or have worked in our sectors. As we approach our 200th year in 2027, and we look to how best to develop our future services, it is a real boost to receive this news and the continued recognition for our organisation.’


Every monarch since Queen Victoria has held the role of Printing Charity patron, and the King himself was charity president in 1977.
