THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE TO ATTEND A METROPOLITAN AND CITY POLICE ORPHANS FUND RECEPTION

Guildhall, London

Wednesday 27th September, 2017

The Duke of Cambridge, Patron of the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund, will attend a reception at Guildhall, London on Wednesday 27th September. The Duke will present a series of awards and scholarships on behalf of the charity, at a ceremony attended by beneficiaries and their families. Afterwards, His Royal Highness will meet children, young people, and family members, who have been supported by the charity over a number of years.

Believed to be the oldest police charity in the world, the Orphans fund began in 1870 initially as an orphanage. In 1937 the orphanage closed and the charity became the present fund which has supported more than 15,000 children. The charity supports the children of serving and former officers of the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police who subscribed to the Fund whilst serving, and who are either deceased, retired on pension, or are unable to contribute materially to the family upkeep.

Through the Fund, families receive financial assistance and education grants to help towards school trips, extracurricular lessons and university costs. Families also receive some money to help pay for summer holidays and Christmas. When young people finish full time education they receive a clothing grant to assist with the costs of suitable clothing for job interviews – this replaced the tradition of each child receiving a trunk of clothes when they left the orphanage. In 2016, the charity gave over £1,000,000 to families. The Duke of Cambridge became Patron in January 2017.

THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM LONDON TO MEET SURVIVORS AND VETERANS OF WORLD WAR II

London

Thursday 28th September, 2017

The Duke of Cambridge, Patron of the Imperial War Museum Foundation, will visit Imperial War Museum (IWM) London where he will meet Freddie Knoller, who took part in the French Resistance and survived imprisonment in Auschwitz, Monovitz and Bergen-Belsen, as well as two veterans of World War II: Ted Cordery and John Harrison. The Duke will also learn about the second phase of ‘Transforming IWM London’, which will create new Second World War Galleries, Holocaust Galleries and a learning suite.

The second phase of ‘Transforming IWM London’ is a £33.5million project that will open in 2020. The new galleries will enable IWM to transform the way it presents the World War II and the Holocaust, helping visitors to understand the complex narrative of the Holocaust within the context of the World War II, something that no other museum currently does. The galleries will draw heavily upon the individual personal stories from IWM’s collections to present a vivid narrative that reflects the realities of World War II, the Holocaust and the way in which they shaped the world.

Both Ted Cordery and John Harrison served on HMS Belfast, which is the largest object in IWM’s collection. Ted Cordery served as a Leading Torpedo Man during the Battle of North Cape in 1943, which was the last time a naval battle was fought between big-gunned warships. Ted was also serving aboard Belfast when she became Flagship of Bombardment Force E, leading the line of ships into position in the early hours of 6 June in support of the D-Day landings. John Harrison was a Petty Officer in charge of the forward-most gun turret and survived a magnetic mine that hit the ship in the Firth of Forth.

While working for the French Resistance Freddie Knoller was arrested by local police and deported to Auschwitz in October 1943. He was then sent to the Monovitz work camp. In early 1945, he was sent on a death march, and survived a further period of slave labour in the notorious Dora concentration camp, before being transferred to Bergen-Belsen, where he was liberated by the British at the end of the war.

IWM (Imperial War Museums) tells the story of people who have lived, fought and died in conflicts involving Britain and the Commonwealth since the First World War.

THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE TO ATTEND
THE WORLD PREMIERE OF 
BLUE PLANET II

BFI IMAX, Waterloo

Wednesday 27th September, 2017

The Duke of Cambridge will attend the World Premiere screening of the BBC’s Blue Planet II at the British Film Institute IMAX cinema. The Duke will join Sir David Attenborough, composer Hans Zimmer, invited guests and school children for the special event, celebrating the show’s potential to inspire the next generation of marine conservationists.

Before the screening, an interactive marine-themed experiential will be set up in the cinema’s foyer, where invited school children from Lionel Primary School in Brentford will be taking part in a series of learning activities. The Duke will join them as they take part in the quizzes and will also see some of the special technology used to film the series including the Megadome camera, and a live demonstration of the full breathing apparatus for underwater filming.

The Duke will then join the invited audience in the cinema to watch the special screening. The premiere will begin with the debut of the Blue Planet II prequel which will be globally launched and simulcast at midday following the screening. The five-minute series curtain-raiser features a unique musical collaboration between Radiohead and Hans Zimmer who have joined forces to produce a track to accompany the prequel. This will be followed by a screening of Blue Planet II’s opening episode which will be broadcast on BBC One later this year. The episode is 50 minutes in duration with an additional 10-minute ‘making of’ following immediately after.

The BBC’s latest natural history landmark Blue Planet II will take viewers on a revelatory journey into the greatest, yet least known part of our planet – our oceans. In recent years, our knowledge of what goes on beneath the waves has been transformed, and using cutting-edge breakthroughs in science and technology to explore this final frontier, Blue Planet II will reveal otherworldly places and extraordinary new animal behaviours.

Broadcast in 2001, The Blue Planet was the BBC Studios Natural History Unit’s unprecedented look at the world’s oceans. A generation on, the Blue Planet II team have spent four years mounting 125 expeditions, visiting 39 countries, and have filmed off every continent and across every ocean.

Prince Harry Visits Northern Ireland

Prince Harry to visit Northern Ireland

Prince Harry arrives in Northern Ireland this morning to visit Ballymena, Belfast and Hillsborough. During this, his first visit to Northern Ireland, the Prince will meet people from across the region, with a focus on the emergency services and young people.

Prince Harry will first visit Ballymena, where he will open the new Northern Ireland Ambulance Service station which combines Ballymena Ambulance Station and North Division Headquarters. The Prince will get a briefing from the design team behind the new £5.6 million facility before watching a demonstration of the station’s resources, including the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) capability, Emergency Resilience, and Training Team. He will see some of the vehicles and ambulances that operate out of the station, and see a demonstration of Paramedic skills before touring the building to view the facilities available to staff. Prince Harry will also take the opportunity to meet some of the staff and crews, to learn about their work in the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service, before unveiling a plaque to officially open the station and commemorate his visit.

Prince Harry will then head to Belfast to visit Co-operation Ireland, a peacebuilding organisation working to encourage and promote interaction, dialogue and practical collaboration within Northern Ireland and between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Prince Harry will meet with a range of youth organisations from across Northern Ireland brought together by Co-operation Ireland and will hear how each group is working with young people to promote cross-community links, bringing young people together who would otherwise not meet, and encourage young leaders to positively engage with their communities. Prince Harry will hear about two programmes in particular – the NI National Citizenship Service and the Amazing the Space programmes. The event will conclude with young people from schools across Northern Ireland sharing their school’s Peace Pledge with Prince Harry to launch Year 2 of the youth-led Amazing the Space programme. The event is being hosted at The MAC in Belfast’s vibrant new Cathedral Quarter where afterwards Prince Harry hopes to have the chance to meet members of the public outside at St Anne’s Square.

His Royal Highness will complete his day in Northern Ireland by attending a Garden Party at Hillsborough Castle. The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has hosted this event annually since 1984. Around 2,000 guests are invited each year, drawn from a wide cross-section of Northern Ireland society, including the voluntary and community sectors, local charities, youth organisations and wider civil society. Hillsborough Castle is the official residence of the Royal Family when they are in Northern Ireland, and the home of the Secretary of State since the early 1970s. A Royal Guest of Honour attends each year, and in recent years this event has been attended by The Duke of York in 2012, The Earl of Wessex in 2013, HM The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh during their visit to Northern Ireland in 2014, The Earl and Countess of Wessex in 2015 and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2016.
