As the Metropolitan Police announced on Wednesday, there are reports that a man from Saudi Arabia has been awarded prizes and British citizenship in exchange for donations.

The police statement stated that documents of an internal investigation conducted by the “Prince Foundation” were the reason for the investigation.

Several British newspapers reported last year that the foundation’s then-CEO and a close confidant of Charles, Michael Fawcett, had pledged support for a Saudi businessman’s pursuit of a knighthood and British citizenship in exchange for donations. Newspapers cite an alleged letter from Fawcett in 2017.

Fawcett resigned as CEO after the disclosure. The Foundation launched an investigation. The palace said at the time that Charles fully supported the internal investigation, but denied any involvement of the heir to the throne.

A spokesperson for the foundation declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.
