The charity at Centrepoint is said to be especially close to the Prince William’s heart which provides housing and support to homeless young people. Following in the footsteps of Princess Diana, it was when Prince William was a boy when he regularly visited the Centrepoint homeless shelters with his mother across the capital to better understand the less fortunate.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also helped to make cookies for resident Tasha Barbi’s 18th birthday. When Barbi was told it was made by Catherine she said, “I am never going to eat it.”

During their visit, the royal couple listened to testimonials from residents who have been supported by the charity. Chief executive Sey Obakin said Prince William is passionate about the charity. “I have seen him talk to a young person and remember their story six months later.”

Obakin said there are one million young people in the country who are unemployed. “Our residents are at the back of the queue as they have no qualifications, no experience and have chaotic lives," he said.

The royal couple finished up their visit after watching the winner of “Centrepoint’s Got Talent.”
