Last week, the Duke of Cambridge was at the Charity Commission's Annual Public Meeting. There, he spoke about the importance of charity organizations and how his parents' activities inspired him to support them.

During his speech at the event, he said he was also encouraged of late by the examples of real willingness to work together.” He added that the seven charities coming together to help the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire and two bowel cancer charities were instances that inspired him.

While pointing out the growing number of charities in Britain, the prince highlighted the importance of organizations coming together to prevent possible confusion for donors.
