King Charles chats to Holly Willoughby and Stanley at Buckingham Palace

King Charles played host to this year’s winners of the Prince’s Trust Awards at Buckingham Palace this afternoon, where celebrity award presenters including Stanley Tucci, Nicola Adams, Fearne Cotton, Nile Rodgers and Charlotte Tilbury attended alongside the King to meet with them. This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby was also at the Palace, and was left in stitches by Charles alongside actor Stanley Tucci. His Majesty was treated to a magic trick by Dynamo, fist bumped Tyler West and was lauded as a “modern King” by singer Geri Horner and a “renaissance man” by make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury.

Yesterday’s awards ceremony at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane was also attended by some very high-profile figures, such as George and Amal Clooney, who were guests at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in 2018.

The actor and his wife, an international law and human rights barrister, appeared at the The Prince’s Trust and TK Maxx and Homesense Awards last night, suggesting they have taken a neutral stance in the fallout between the Sussexes and the rest of the royals.

Now in its 19th year, the awards recognise young people who have succeeded against the odds, improved their chances in life and had a positive impact on their local community.

King Charles was joined by the Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust, Mr. Jonathan Townsend Chief Executive, Prince’s Trust International, Mr. William Straw, and Prince’s Trust Ambassadors Ant and Dec in the 1844 Room to discuss the awards from yesterday.

Then in the Bow Room the King met with winners and celebrity presenters, with awards up for grabs for both UK and International candidates.

Amal Clooney also has her own award, the Amal Clooney Women’s Empowerment Award, which was given out for the first time last year to Pakistani women’s rights activist Tanzila Khan.

According to the Prince’s Trust website the award aims to “to highlight the global work of young women who have succeeded against the odds and made a lasting difference to those around them”.

Presenting the award at the 2022 ceremony, the barrister said: “It’s an honour to have been invited to present an award by Prince’s Trust International. And a particular pleasure to be able to champion young women making a difference in their communities.

“Our awardee took every stereotype and debunked it; each barrier she faced, and broke it. She refuses to accept the status quo – and fights to change it not just for herself but for all girls and all those living with disabilities.

“Her advocacy brings light to the darkest places – and I hope that after receiving this award, she will be able to shine even more brightly.”

The two other International Award categories are Global Young Achiever and The Prince’s Trust Group Sustainability Award.

In the UK there are eight Award categories: Young Change Maker, Community Impact Award, Rising Star Award, Breakthrough Award, Education Achiever Award, Enterprise Award, Young Achiever Award and Volunteer of the Year.
