Duchess of Cornwall to grace JDRF fundraising event
Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall will be the star guest at a JDRF fundraising party.
The Duchess of Cornwall became the charity’s President in 2012 after meeting JDRF supporters affected by Type 1 diabetes in Cambridge. She has subsequently shown her commitment to the role by publically meeting JDRF-funded researchers at University College Hospital in London and at the University of Dundee in Scotland.
The visit to Dundee saw Her Royal Highness learn about the work of Professor Rory McCrimmon, who is undertaking world-leading research into ways to combat hypoglycaemia.
Speaking at the time, JDRF Chief Executive Karen Addington said: “We are deeply grateful for her ongoing support as President. Her presence provided a fantastic opportunity to showcase the vital research that Professor McCrimmon and his team do.”
The Duchess of Cornwall will attend JDRF’s Art Antiques London Party in the Park, in Kensington, on June 10. Lord Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey, and Emmy Award-winning actress Susan Hampshire will also be present.
