The Prince's Foundation

The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by His Majesty The King Charles III's philosophy of harmony: that by understanding the balance, the order and the relationships between ourselves and the natural world, we can create a more sustainable future.

For more than 40 years His Majesty has been at the forefront of championing sustainability. During the last decade the impact of natural resource depletion, climate change and rapid urbanisation has become evident and widely understood. The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by the belief that only by taking a holistic view can we create a sustainable future to meet the needs of our world.

The Prince’s Foundation was created through the merger, in 2018, of The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust and The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts.
