Isaac Newton Trust



Since its foundation, the Isaac Newton Trust has enjoyed the Patronage of HRH Charles, The Prince of Wales, who chaired the first meeting of Trustees on 22 November 1988.  

The Trust wishes to convey its sincere condolences to His Majesty The King and to all the Royal Family on the sad death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Following His Majesty’s Accession, the Royal Household will conduct a review of Royal Patronage over the coming months and we await further news.
