William to follow Diana’s example by taking his children to shelters

Prince William has said he is committed to following in Princess Diana’s footsteps by taking his children to visit homeless shelters.

As a young boy, his mother took him and Harry to shelters hoping to instil a lifelong passion for charitable work.

Prince William made the promise to continue this work with his own children when he visited The Passage, a homeless charity in London.

The Prince of Wales met Sister Joan, who rememberered his late mother visiting the charity in the early 1990s.

At the end of his visit, William stood and spoke to Sister Joan.

The 40-year-old and his brother, Prince Harry, were both with their mother during the visit.

William paid the visit to The Passage earlier this week, and was in attendance to officially open two refurbished accommodation centres run by the charity.

During his visit, William said he was more “determined than ever” to a role in stopping the “human tragedy” that is homelessness.

Diana hoped to instill a passion for the homeless community in her two sons, actively hoping to broaden their horizons.

The late Princess, along with William and Harry, visited the charity in 1993. It is thought she met Sister Joan during this visit.

Speaking about the late Princess, Sister Joan said that Diana was “beautiful and gentle”.

The 90-year-old described Diana as an “ordinary person with no airs and graces”, adding she could “relate to anybody”.

Speaking of Prince William, who is first in line to the throne, Sister Joan said: “He said he would bring his children one day to see us.”
