The Royal Household conducted a review of Royal Patronage following His Majesty The King’s Accession to the throne. The Royal Household has confirmed Her Majesty The Queen (formerly HRH The Duchess of Cornwall) will continue her long-standing role as President of the Royal Osteoporosis Society (ROS).

Staff, volunteers and members, past and present, at the ROS would like to sincerely thank Her Majesty The Queen for her unwavering support over the last three decades.

The Queen became a supporter of the charity in 1994, before taking on the role as President in 2001.

Craig Jones, Chief Executive at the Royal Osteoporosis Society, said:

“For 30 years, Her Majesty The Queen has been one of the most high-profile advocates in the world for beating osteoporosis. We’re proud to be a cause so close to her heart. By channelling the painful experience of her own mother’s osteoporosis, she has helped ensure millions of people can live well and, importantly, encouraged younger audiences to become more aware of their bone health.”

Royal support has enabled the ROS to play a vital role in helping more people than ever before, while strengthening its role as a sponsor of research.

Craig Jones continued:

“A lot has changed in the last 30 years but what hasn’t changed is the need to raise awareness of this under-estimated condition, which is one of the most urgent threats to people living well in later life. For far too many, its effects are life-changing, but there are enormous opportunities to help people live well, provided the right care and support is in place. Those opportunities must be seized. The continued support of The Royal Family will help us to break the silence on this condition and change lives as we work to beat osteoporosis.”
