More than £1m has been donated to the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund, which will benefit the 26 charities and community foundations chosen by Prince William and Kate Middleton to celebrate their marriage last month.
The fund, which invited people to make donations to charity as wedding gifts for the now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, has raised a total of £1,058,367.
Charities that will benefit from the donations include the veterans mental health charity Combat Stress, the anti-bullying charity Beatbullying and ACT, which works with terminally ill children and their families, as well as groups in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
The majority of donations were made through the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund website. The funding will be distributed through the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
