The British heir to the throne, Prince William (41), surprisingly took part in the Christmas party organized by the charity The Passage. Kensington Palace posted pictures of the homeless feeding on Instagram. The son of King Charles III. helped out himself and put on a kitchen apron over his green sweater so that he could better take care of preparing food for those in need.
Among other things, turkey with fried potatoes and Brussels sprouts and other delicacies suitable for the Christmas season were served. The Prince of Wales then sat down with the guests to talk to them. Kensington Palace also confirmed the prince's visit to The Passage on X (formerly Twitter) and also shared a one-minute video of the celebration there.
Prince William has been a patron of The Passage for many years and visited the charity organization as an eleven-year-old in the 1990s with his mother, Princess Diana (1961-1997), to take part in the Christmas dinners. William has long been committed to fighting poverty. At the beginning of the year, he announced a million-dollar aid fund that is intended to put an end to homelessness within five years.
In the summer he made his plans more concrete. “In a modern and progressive society, everyone should have a safe home, be treated with dignity and receive the support they need,” Prince William said at the launch of his Homewards program in June. He firmly believes in achieving his goals. He also included this idea in his most recent post about his visit to The Passage and wrote on Instagram: “Together we can end homelessness.”
