We’re so pleased to announce that HRH The Duchess of Cambridge today becomes Joint President of the Scouts, alongside HRH The Duke of Kent to champion the power of Scouting and oversee the Council, the Scouts’ governing body.
Her first move is to thank every Scouts volunteer across the UK for their brilliant work supporting families and communities during this challenging year.
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, who has helped Scouts in so many ways over the last eight years, has now kindly agreed to take on this historic role and is the first woman to hold the post in the movement’s 113-year history.
The Duchess’ first engagement as Joint President is a visit to 12th Northolt Scouts, based in London, to thank them and all Scouts volunteers who have supported young people during lockdown.
Beginning her support for Scouts as a volunteer while living on Anglesey, The Duchess has been a great friend of the movement and a constant champion for young people. A great believer in the power of volunteering, she has a particular interest and expertise in early years’ education and speaks frequently on the positive impact gaining life skills at an early age can have on a young person’s wellbeing and development.
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge was particularly keen to meet Scout volunteers, who have done so much to support young people during the current pandemic. In this challenging time, Scouting is more important than ever before - giving young people life skills and a sense of connection and belonging, all while supporting communities in areas of deprivation disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
