Princess Charlene of Monaco has pledged over R1 million to charity in honour of Archbishop Desmond Tutu's 80th birthday, The Giving Organisation Trust says.

Princess Charlene informed the trust of her R1,080,000 donation on Saturday evening, said spokeswoman Lesley O'Connor.

The princess, co-patron of the Trust with Tutu, said in a statement she hoped her contribution would encourage the public and corporate sector to honour the Archbishop by donating to those in need.

The trust represents ten charities in South Africa. The donation was to be divided equally among them.

Trust chairmen Kelvin Glen said the charities deeply appreciated the princess's generosity and her continued support of the trust.
