Naomi Campbell Becomes Global Ambassador for Queen Elizabeth’s Commonwealth Trust

Super model, Naomi Campbell has been named as a global ambassador for the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust – and she is the very first person to take on the royal role. The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust is an organisation which helps to assist the projects of youth advocates across the globe, and the Queen acts as a patron.

Campbell is taking on the task, having undertaken plenty of charity work throughout her career. The supermodel launched an initiative called We Love Brazil in 2005 to help tackle poverty in the South American country, before launching Fashion For Relief, through which she raises millions for various humanitarian and environmental causes via a charity fashion show each year. The model has also been outspoken about various injustices over her time in the spotlight, voicing her support to the #Me Too movement and Black Lives Matter.

In her new role, the supermodel will help to support young innovators between the ages of 18 and 35 across the Commonwealth, connecting them with opportunities, training, and funding.”It is my privilege to accept this role as global ambassador for The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust,” Campbell said at the announcement event at the Cafe Royal Hotel in Central London last night. “Regardless of where you are from or where you are now, there are young leaders within your community doing amazing work. Sometimes they are not seen and some of them may not even see themselves as ‘leaders’ yet, but they all deserve our support, and access to education and resources.”

“This is something very close to my heart, and I will continue to do everything I can to uplift the next generation, so they can create a better future for their communities,” she added.

Christopher Kelly, CEO of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, explained that Campbell will help the organisation “to shine a spotlight on the service, innovation and achievements” of young people across the Commonwealth.
