Latest Queen Elizabeth News – The Covid-stricken monarch has doctors on standby 24/7 battling the coronavirus


98% of donations go to the staff of the royal charity

The royal charity, which has partnered with Prince Harry, paid out 98 percent of its donations to its own staff.

A royal charity, which has partnered with Prince Harry’s life advice firm, has paid its employees 98 per cent of the money raised in a year, it turns out.

The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust (QCT) raised £796,106 from donors but disbursed £787,314 in staff costs to its ten staff in the year to March 2021.

More than half the money went to the top five executives, who collectively made £420,000, Charity Commission accounts show.

Chris Kelly, QCT’s chief executive, earns at least £140,000 – a similar salary to the RSPCA boss, although the animal rights group raises around £130m in donations and employs almost 2,000 people.

The QCT, which has the Queen as Patron and is based near Buckingham Palace in London, was launched in 2018 to fund and otherwise support young Commonwealth leaders.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle were QCT’s original president and vice president, but they lost their positions when they relocated to the United States to pursue commercial and media careers.

Now, however, the QCT is sponsoring online coaching company BetterUp, which employs Prince Harry as chief impact officer for an undisclosed salary.
