About Fundatia Printul de Wales
His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has a well-known fondness for Romania having first visited Transylvania in 1998. A passionate supporter of the countryside and keen amateur botanist, HRH discovered a rural idyll, largely lost to the UK. Since that first visit, The Prince of Wales has returned to Transylvania many times; each visit further strengthening his desire to help preserve this unique landscape, traditional architecture and way of life, which have survived for hundreds of years.
Established in 2015, Fundatia Printul de Wales takes forward the Romanian charitable work of HRH The Prince of Wales. It is based at one of the two properties owned by The Prince of Wales in Romania, via his charitable Foundation, located in the UNESCO village of Viscri, Brasov County.
Over the last three years, the Charity has developed a number of projects in the fields of heritage preservation, education, farming and sustainable development. In 2017, The Foundation launched a new major programme in support of Romania's wounded soldiers.
