The Royal Photographic Society was founded in 1853 and is one of the oldest of its kind in the world.
According to the post office, it promotes the art and science of photography.
Royal sponsors promote charitable organizations and bring recognition to their work. In January, it became known that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, would become patron of four charities supporting vulnerable women, education, arts and animals.
Two of the patrons – for the National Theater and the Association of Commonwealth Universities – were passed on by the Queen, who held them for 45 and 33 years.
The other two are for Smart Works, which helps long-term unemployed and vulnerable women interview and find work, and Mayhew, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the welfare of animals in London and internationally.
