Royal Tribute To Red Cross On 150 Years Of Valued Service
The Queen has led the Royal Family in paying tribute to the British Red Cross on the eve of its 150th anniversary, describing the charity’s work as “valued and greatly appreciated”.

Since 1870, the organisation has shown “just how powerful kindness can be” said the Prince of Wales.

The Duchess of Cambridge remembered the thousands of staff and volunteers – including her great-grandmother and grandmother – who have “contributed tirelessly” to the charity’s work.

The British National Society for Aid to the Sick and Wounded in War was founded in London 150 years ago today. It would later be renamed the British Red Cross.
