The Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Catherine, were in Scarborough today. This is the Royal couple’s first public appearance since October 13th when they marked the 10th anniversary of Coach Core. Their three children’s fall term break started on October 14th and lasted until October 31st. The school breaks are usually the time off for William and Catherine also.
As the month of November is Remembrance month and next week The Royal Family will be marking Remembrance Sunday and attending the Festival of Remembrance. William and Catherine were wearing poppies to mark the Remembrance period.

William and Catherine visited, ‘The Street’ – a community hub that hosts organisations to grow and develop their services – where they met the grant panel of young people from the area who will be distributing the funding to local projects. Outside the community, there was a crowd gathered to meet the Royal Couple.
The Prince and Princess of Wales met with local organisations that will benefit from the funding which has been created from a collaboration between The Royal Foundation of The Prince and Princess of Wales and the Two Ridings Community Foundation. The Royal Foundation and Two Ridings Community Foundation have convened local donors to secure funding to support the work of community-led organisations working with young people in the Scarborough area. The Royal Foundation of the Prince and Princess of Wales has provided £345,000 of funding in support of long-term mental health and well-being for the young people in Scarborough.
During the visit, The Royal couple saw firsthand how community organisations are rallying to help those who are struggling with the rising cost of living. The Prince and Princess of Wales have long been champions of the importance of young people’s mental health and Their Royal Highnesses are passionate about creating a long-term impact in this space through The Royal Foundation.
At the Street Community hub, William and Catherine met with the grant panel of young people. The young people on the panel have themselves been supported by local community organisations and the meeting is a chance to understand how grant decisions were made and learn more about how this funding will make a difference to young people in Scarborough.
From The Street to The Rainbow Centre and everyone in between, we loved meeting you all in Scarborough today.

The Prince and Princess of Wales then met three local charitable organisations who are beneficiaries of the funding and see first-hand some of the work they are doing to make a difference in their community as well as the benefit of localised funding. Jan Garrill, chief executive of the Two Ridings Community Foundation has been working with the Royal Foundation and will meet the couple. She believes the impact of rising living costs will cause more damage than COVID-19 in the long term for many families.
