Oh, Charlie. It sure takes a long time for bad habits to die, right? Prince Charles is under investigation over a suitcase containing a €1m donation from a former Qatari prime minister. The Charity Commission said it would look into donations received from the Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation (PWCF). Here’s what you need to know.
According to the Sunday Times, between 2011 and 2015, the prince personally accepted donations totaling €3 million to his charity Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund (PWCF) from Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim, a former Prime Minister of Qatar. However, Clarence House said the donations were “prompted” to one of the Prince’s charities and that “appropriate management” had been carried out.

“Charity donations received from Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim were immediately forwarded to one of the Prince’s charities, who carried out the appropriate administration and assured us that all correct processes were followed,” the statement said. Charities are allowed to accept cash donations, but the Charity Commission has guidelines that encourage everyone to follow to exercise due diligence when accepting donations.
The Sunday Times reported that a donation of one million euros was once handed over in a suitcase at a meeting at the Prince’s residence, Clarence House. Founded in 1979, the charity with a mission to transform lives and build sustainable communities provides grants to UK registered charities to carry out projects in the UK, Commonwealth and overseas.
It comes as another of Charles’s charities, the Prince’s Foundation, is currently under investigation by the Metropolitan Police over an alleged cash-for-honors scandal.
