Carlo received three o’clock in person donations between 2011 and 2015. The funds were allocated to the Charitable Fund of the Prince of Wales, whose stated goal is to “transform lives and build sustainable communities” by awarding grants to various causes and projects in the areas of conservation, education, health and social inclusion. The charity fund headed by the prince, told the Sunday Times, that its trustees concluded the donor was legitimate and the auditors approved the donation.
Donations to Prince Charles’ charities have come under scrutiny in recent months following allegations that one of these charities offered help to a Saudi donor to secure him an honor and British citizenship.
The Met, the territorial police force responsible for Greater London, had announced earlier this year that it is investigating these allegations under the Honors Act 1925. The foundation – specifies the Sunday Times – would be offering full cooperation while Clarence House assures that the Prince Charles was unaware of the alleged offer of honors or citizenship based on donations to his charities.
