Her Royal Highness Princess Benedikte of Denmark is the Patron of the World Diabetes Foundation.
'I feel strongly that diabetes care is a cause very much worth supporting, and therefore I have personally been attached to the cause of diabetes for several years. Like many other people, I was personally concerned when I first heard of the disturbing predictions for the prevalence of diabetes reaching epidemic proportions all over the world. Becoming the patron of the World Diabetes Foundation gives me the chance to play a part in the on-going fight of the diabetes epidemic in the least developed parts of the world. And that is most certainly a cause worth dedicating my time to.'
