Cheryl Cole has afternoon tea with Prince Charles

Wednesday February 23, 2011

Cheryl Cole has announced the launch of a charity foundation with the Prince's Trust.

The X Factor judge had an audience with Prince Charles at Clarence House to discuss her plans to start the project in April.

It will provide vital funds for the Trust's work in the pop star's home town of Newcastle and surrounding areas.

The Girls Aloud star said she wanted her foundation to help youngsters fulfil their potential.

"Too many young people grow up thinking no-one cares and don't believe they can make anything of themselves.

"I want my foundation to help them realise their potential and get their lives on track."

Founded in 1976, the Prince's flagship charity, has helped disadvantaged young people across the country to find employment or return to education. 

His sons are likely to be pleased by the collaboration. Prince William and Prince Harry are said to be ‘big fans’ of Cheryl.
