THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE AND PRINCE HARRY WILL ATTEND THE CHARITIES FORUM EVENT
Paddington Station, London
Monday 16th October, 2017
The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry will join children from the charities they support on board Belmond British Pullman train at Paddington Station. The event will be hosted by STUDIOCANAL, with support from BAFTA through its BAFTA Kids programme, and before embarking Their Royal Highnesses will meet the cast and crew from the forthcoming film PADDINGTON 2.
The Duke and Prince Harry will spend time meeting the young guests on board the 1920s and 30s vintage carriages that form the sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. After which they will disembark, and wave off Belmond British Pullman as it departs Paddington Station and journeys through the English Countryside.
This will be a unique opportunity for members of Their Royal Highnesses’ Charities Forum to nominate some of the children they support – many going through difficult times in their lives – for a special trip aboard the train.
There are over 30 organisations involved in The Charities Forum, which consists of Their Royal Highnesses’ patronages and other organisations with whom they work closely. The Forum aims to bring together Their Royal Highnesses’ individual charitable interests. The group meets regularly, with organisations taking it in turns to host. The meetings provide an opportunity for the charities to update Their Royal Highnesses on their recent activities and projects, and also provide a platform for collaborative activity between the organisations. Opportunities to support each other are explored at meetings, relationships are developed and bilateral work is initiated, often between charities and organisations that would not ordinarily have been linked through the course of their own work.
