Hundreds of green spaces to mark a nation's gratitude

by Prince William has become Patron of The Queen Elizabeth II Fields, an initiative to protect and create hundreds of playing fields throughout the United Kingdom in honour of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The project, run by Fields in Trust, is an ambitious programme which will ensure that people across the country, both now and for generations to come, have access to outdoor recreational spaces for sport and physical activity.

Prince William's patronage of The Queen Elizabeth II Fields (which, in Scotland, will be known as The Queen Elizabeth Fields) will be a personal tribute to The Queen to celebrate Her Majesty's 60-year-reign.

The Fields will form a lasting legacy of the Diamond Jubilee to be celebrated in 2012.
