Battersea Dogs & Cats Home have today announced that The Duchess of Cornwall has become their new Royal Patron.

The news was first announced on Twitter by Clarence House as the Duchess, joined celebrity ambassadors David Gandy and Amanda Holden for a special visit to the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, Windsor centre on Wednesday morning.

The Duchess of Cornwall chatted to staff outside the centre, before heading inside where she met some of its canine residents including an adorable spaniel named Willow.

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s chief executive Claire Horton said, ‘Battersea has long considered The Duchess of Cornwall to be a very close and dear friend and a huge supporter of our work, so it’s absolutely wonderful to now welcome Her Royal Highness as our new Royal Patron.

‘Having re-homed two Battersea dogs, Beth and Bluebell, and visited us on numerous occasions, we feel The Duchess is already part of our special Battersea family and we look forward with such enthusiasm to an even closer connection in the years to come.’

Claire Horton went on to add, ‘We were so thrilled to welcome our new Royal Patron to Battersea Old Windsor for the very first time. Today’s visit was a great opportunity to show Her Royal Highness behind the scenes of our Berkshire centre and explain the many benefits such a rural setting offers our animals.

‘It’s a peaceful, country haven, particularly for those dogs who long to romp around in grassy fields. We know The Duchess really enjoyed her visit and she will be a tireless supporter of our vital work, for which we are truly grateful.’
