The Metropolitan Police has launched an investigation into cash-for-honours allegations linked to the Prince of Wales’s charity The Prince’s Foundation.
The Prince’s Foundation said it would be “inappropriate to comment on an ongoing investigation”
The Metropolitan Police said in a statement that its decision to investigate alleged offences followed “assessment of a September 2021 letter. This related to media reporting alleging offers of help were made to secure honours and citizenship for a Saudi national”.
It added: “Officers liaised with The Prince’s Foundation about the findings of an independent investigation into fundraising practices.
“The foundation provided a number of relevant documents.
“These documents were reviewed alongside existing information. The assessment determined an investigation will commence.
“There have been no arrests or interviews under caution.”
