Generally just a figurehead for the charity and don't do much beyond an odd visit (esp if royalty!) some do loads though, but at v senior level

Yep, have CATted you in any case, can talk about it. Fauve is good on this too. Broadly, agree with Melrose...

...oh and you get LOADS of coverage if one of them pops their clogs in a Paris road accident, I've found.

Quite often drawn in by personal circumstances in the case of medical/health campaigning charities. SANDS patrons for example are there for the saddest of reasons and are very hands-on.
