98% of donations go to staff of the royal charity
The royal charity that works with Prince Harry has spent 98% of its donations on its staff.
A Royal charity in partnership with Prince Harry’s life coaching company has paid its staff 98% of the money raised in a year, it has emerged.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust (QCT) brought in £796,106 from donors but paid £787,314 in staff costs for its ten staff in the year to March 2021.
More than half of the money went to their five top executives, who raked in £420,000 between them, the Charity Commission account showed.
Chris Kelly, chief executive of QCT, earns at least £140,000 – the same salary as the boss of the RSPCA, although the animal charity has raised around £130m and employs almost 2,000 people pellets.
QCT, which has the Queen as its Patron and is based near Buckingham Palace in London, was launched in 2018 to provide funding and other forms of support to young Commonwealth leaders.
Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, were the original President and Vice President of QCT, but they lost their positions when they moved to the US to pursue a career in commerce and media.
Now, however, QCT is pitching online coaching company BetterUp, which employs Prince Harry as its Director of Impact for an undisclosed salary.
