Katy's appointment as ambassador is not a coincidence. PEOPLE reports, she traveled across many parts of the world while working as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, where she was inspired to work with Charles after meeting him. In 2013 she spoke about the first time she met the prince saying:

"India has long held a special place in my heart, and on my last visit, I was able to meet with The Prince of Wales...I was impressed by their strong plan, from on the ground initiatives to fundraising."
