His Majesty The King to be Patron of King Edward VII’s Hospital

His Majesty The King is to succeed Her Majesty The Late Queen Elizabeth II as Patron of King Edward VII’s Hospital.

His Majesty is continuing a tradition of Royal patronage which dates from the founding of the hospital in 1899, when King Edward VII became its first patron. The Late Queen succeeded her father King George VI as Patron in 1952.

““We are deeply honoured that The King has agreed to become our Patron, continuing a long tradition of Royal patronage by the reigning Monarch which stretches back to our founding. His Majesty’s support for the hospital’s charitable purpose of treating current and former members of the Armed Forces and their families through our Centre for Veterans’ Health, alongside our work as a leading independent hospital, is tremendously valued by our team.

We are also deeply grateful to HRH The Duke of Kent, who has been President of the hospital since 1975, and who continues to actively support our work.”
