Sentebale, the Duke of Sussex’s charity, was founded to assist orphaned African children. According to the charity’s accounts, it has made a multimillion-pound profit. In 2006, the Prince co-founded a charity called Sentebale.
However, the charity has claimed nearly £20,000 in taxpayer funds in the last two years.
According to the Daily Mail, Sentebale received £5,000 from the government’s Job Retention scheme last year, on top of £14,000 in 2020, according to newly released accounts.
Despite the fact that the charity earned £3.1 million in the year ending in August, the claim was made.
