The Society is delighted to announce that HRH The Princess Royal is to become Patron as The Queen stands down from the role after more than 60 years.
The Princess Royal takes on patronage of the Society from Her Majesty the Queen, who has announced a reduction in her workload as she ends her 90th year. The Society has been privileged to have the Queen as Patron since 1953 and she has been a wonderful supporter of the Society during this time.
Dr Rita Gardner CBE, Director of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) said: “The Society fully understands the need for The Queen to reduce her workload at this time in her life, and we thank her for her patronage and support.
“The Princess Royal is a great supporter of the Society and its charitable work and has been an active Honorary Vice-President. We are looking forward to working with Her Royal Highness in her new role.”
This autumn the Society is holding a new exhibition of platinum prints of photographs of the 1921 expedition to Everest.
