Kate Middleton & Prince William’s Latest Royal Charity Announcement Might Be the Biggest to Date

Kate Middleton and Prince William just revealed a major charitable act, in the form of about $2 million.

On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announed that the Royal Foundation has granted the massive donation to benefit the U.K.’s frontline workers and help support the mental health of the nation's citizens. The funding has been set up as part of the organization’s response to the current coronavirus pandemic.

“Over recent months we have all been in awe of the incredible work that frontline staff and emergency responders have been doing in response to COVID-19,” the couple wrote in an Instagram post. “And we know that for many of them, their families, and for thousands of others across the UK, the pandemic will have a lasting impact on their mental health.”

The grants, made to 10 leading charities that focus on these subjects, come just days after the royal couple met with four representatives from the benfiting organizations on the Queen's Sandringham Estate.

During their chat, which took place outdoors and adhered to the country’s social distancing guidelines, Prince William opened up about the importance of providing assistance and resources to those in need during this difficult time.

“It’s great to hear how The Royal Foundation is supporting you and many others to build resilience and give you the networks you need through its COVID-19 Response Fund, which will help ten leading charities continue their crucial work.”

It’s important to mention that the whopping $2 million is in addition to all of the other work the couple has done over the last few months. For example, they created “Our Frontline,” which aims to provide one-on-one support and online resources to those working closely to fight against the virus.

One thing’s for sure, generosity is not lost on Kate and Will.
