Prince Charles has been named patron of the Museum of London with the Royal Family member’s patronage announced following a visit to the museum’s future home in West Smithfield earlier this year.

This new patronage, says the museum, reflects the Prince and museum’s shared passion for London’s heritage, the capital’s built environment as well as a shared optimism for the future of the city.

“As we continue our journey to create a world-class museum for London and Londoners in West Smithfield, it is an honour for the Prince of Wales to be our patron,” said Sharon Ament, director of the Museum of London.

“Our ambitions are bold and transformative, and I know we share with His Royal Highness a vision of a better future.”

During his visit earlier in 2021, the Prince of Wales was given a tour of the Victorian General Market designed by Sir Horace Jones, which will become the Museum’s main public space after laying dormant for more than 30 years. The new museum will be part of a much larger site, encompassing the famous Smithfield market, and will be a 24-hour cultural hub.

“Our mission is to enhance the understanding and appreciation of London and all its people,” said Museum of London chair, Clive Bannister.

“Through the lens of history, we’re better able to understand the present and navigate the future. With the support of the Prince of Wales, we will continue to deliver a positive impact on the lives of Londoners; both at our current museums in the City and Tower Hamlets, as well as our future home in West Smithfield.”
