How we are governed


HRH The Duchess of Cornwall 


HRH The Duchess of Cornwall became President of Maggie's in November 2008.

Her Royal Highness first visited Maggie's Edinburgh in July 2008. Her visit made a huge impact and her warmth and generosity of spirit were greatly appreciated by all who met her. We then approached Her Royal Highness to request her formal appointment as Maggie's President.

Passionate and committed to our work, and one of our greatest advocates, Her Royal Highness has visited many of our Centres in England, Wales and Scotland.

Since her appointment in 2008 Her Royal Highness has formally opened the garden of Maggie’s Dundee; hosted a dinner for Maggie’s supporters at her London home; given tea to members of the Women’s Institute in Wales to raise awareness about Maggie’s; attended Anna Valentine’s fashion show in aid of Maggie’s; officially opened Maggie’s Cheltenham; planted an artichoke in the vegetable garden at Maggie’s Swansea; attended the ICAP Charity Auction Day from which we received a significant donation; joined a tea party at Vogue House to mark the end of the House & Garden campaign for Maggie’s; and in September 2013, invited Her Majesty The Queen of Norway to join her to officially open Maggie’s Aberdeen at the Elizabeth Montgomerie Building. 

As Maggie’s President, Her Royal Highness has brought great joy to many of the people who use our Centres and we are hugely grateful for her passion and continued unswerving commitment.
