Penny Mountbatten has thirty years experience in event management and brand representation. She works closely with some of the best British retailers and luxury hotels, raising their profiles and executing market entry strategies in emerging markets. In her early twenties, Penny ran a corporate entertainment business from the home she shared with her then-husband, Lord Ivar Mountbatten.

She represents the Australian-born artist, Ralph Heimans, who was the only artist chosen to paint an Official portrait of The Queen in Her Diamond Jubilee Year. He has also painted TRH’s The Duke of Edinburgh, The Earl & Countess of Wessex, other members of European Royal families, many popular celebrities and global philanthropists. As a hands-on Patron of three other charities, Penny organises and participates in many fundraising events.

I have followed The Hygiene Bank charity for a long while on social media, collecting essential hygiene products at home to donate at my local drop off point. I am honoured to now be patron and be able to use my position to raise further awareness of the charity and the issues sadly facing so many people in this country today.
