The Prince's Trust Marketplace is the place to visit this week. Exciting new businesses founded by inspirational young women will be showcased within the magnificent newly restored Grade II listed Battersea Power Station in London to celebrate International Women’s Day.
From Friday 3 March to Saturday 4 March, more than 15 mall brands who have been directly supported by King Charles III's charity will be selling their finest wares, from jewellery to candles and ceramics, stationery, food and more.
WATCH: Royals love shopping too!
Trendsetting royals from Princess Kate to Duchess Meghan and even Princess Charlotte are known to prompt surges in sales when they step out in these undiscovered brands – some of which have included Prince's Trust alumni. Every stallholder at the marketplace will be an up-and-coming young woman who has completed the charity's 'Enterprise Programme', founded in 1976.
