Prince Charles has teamed up with pop star Katy Perry for a special reason.
The unlikely pair have joined forces to support charity the British Asian Trust.
During this evening’s annual Royal Dinner for the charity, which focused on anti-trafficking, the heir apparent named the Roar singer ambassador for the organisation’s Children’s Protection Fund for India.
“My work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador has taken me to many parts of the world and opened my eyes to the many vulnerabilities of children,” said Katy of her new role. “India has long held a special place in my heart, and on my last visit, I was able to meet with The Prince of Wales and other leaders in Mumbai, and I was impressed by their strong plan - from on-ground initiatives to fundraising - that will aim to cut child trafficking in half.
“That is why I am especially honoured to be named an ambassador for the British Asian Trust’s Children’s Protection Fund, and to help shine my light on the work that the British Asian Trust will be doing in South Asia, and to be a part of finding solutions to child trafficking. Children are vulnerable and innocent and have to be protected”.
Manoj Badale, Chair of the British Asian Trust, also commented on the move, adding, “We’re delighted to announce Katy Perry as our newest ambassador and are looking forward to working with her on raising awareness of the work we carry out across South Asia.
“Katy is a keen supporter of our work and her appointment marks another successful year for the British Asian Trust.”
Congratulations Katy on the new role!
