On behalf of his mother Princess Diana, the heir to the British throne Prince William wants to draw more attention to the fight against homelessness.
"I think she would be disappointed that we are no further along in the fight against homelessness than when she campaigned against it," William said while visiting a charity in London, according to the PA news agency. There he recorded a podcast and was tagged for a television production to mark the charity Red Nose Day, due to air on the BBC on Friday.
"My mother introduced me to the issue of homelessness at a fairly young age and I'm very grateful for that," said William, who spoke to two homeless people at the scene about their experiences.
Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in 1997, dedicated a lot to the fight against homelessness. She took William to a homeless shelter when he was eleven.
On his 40th birthday last year, William announced that he wanted to follow in these footsteps more closely and set accents in a similar direction: At that time he could be seen in a red vest and cap selling the homeless newspaper "Big Issue" on the streets of London .
