The practice of members of the Royal Families lending their names to organizations through formal patronages is thought to have existed since the 18th century.     

The first recorded patronage of Great Britain was King George II's involvement with the Society of Antiquaries.     
The Society of Antiquaries is an organization concerned with architecture and art history, conservation and heraldry.

I recollect an Alexandra Day, set up shortly before WWI to celebrate Queen Alexandra the wife of Edward VII. She was a very popular consort, and flowers were sold on this day to raise money for hospital charities.
