Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Announcement on Patron

Following HRH The Duke of York’s announcement that he will be stepping back from public life, management representatives of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) met with Prince Andrew’s office on Thursday afternoon. At a subsequent meeting of the RPO Board, it was decided that the Orchestra should part company with its Patron, with immediate effect.

The RPO would like to express its gratitude to His Royal Highness for his support of the Orchestra over the past 15 years.

As one of the world’s leading symphony orchestras, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra looks forward to an extensive UK and international concert schedule in the year ahead.
