The Prince’s Trust: All-Star Rock Concert (1986)

Here is some video footage from the 10th anniversary Prince’s Trust All-Star Rock Concert at Wembley Arena in London, England, on June 20, 1986. In attendance were Charles & Diana, the Prince and Princess of Wales. The Prince’s Trust, a philanthropic venture initiated in 1976, says on its site that it “supports 13 to 30 year olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.” In other words, it aims to give those at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder a hand up, which is not the same as a hand out.
