Patron: His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales

Patron of The Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust

It was announced in April 2013, that His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales had agreed to take on the Patronage of The Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust, for a five year term.

Admiral Sir Ian Garnett KCB, Chairman of Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust said; “This underscores our reputation as a nationally important heritage destination with a strong future. More importantly, I am delighted for every single member of staff whose loyalty and commitment to making this place, The Historic Dockyard Chatham, a visitor attraction second to none has been recognised. Without such dedication by its people, both full-time and volunteer, no organisation can aspire to Royal Patronage”.
