The Prince and Princess of Wales’ Royal Foundation charity has signalled a push into socially-conscious content with the hire of executive producer Leila Monks.

The move builds on the indie’s partnership with the BBC and Discovery on Silverback Films’ environmentally-themed nature series Repairing Our Planet, in which Prince William appeared alongside Sir David Attenborough.

Monks co-founded Antidote Productions and has also worked for indies including Alaska TV, Off the Fence and Zig Zag.

She has produced and exec-ed a string of docs about issues such as mental health, drugs, and sexuality, including BBC3’s Professor Green: Suicide and Me and Olly Alexander: Growing Up Gay, plus Snap’s I Want to Get Better with Jameela Jamil, Channel 4’s What Makes a Woman and BBC1’s Addicted.

At the Royal Foundation, she will work with partners to shine a light on the work of the charity, which appointed Bafta chief executive Amanda Berry as its chief executive last year.

Monks said she shared the Royal Foundation's passion for tackling mental health, conservation and early years education and for using accessible storytelling to effect real change.
