A source told the Daily Express that “Homelessness is an issue affecting every part of our society and William has a steely determination to get things done.”
“He wants change and impact. He wants to use his platform for change. Homelessness is increasing and William is absolutely committed to helping resolve this issue.”
“It’s nerve-racking but I’m really excited. I’ve been waiting for the right time. You’ll see that when it’s ready. I’m no policy expert, but I push it where I can,” he recently told the Sunday Times.
This is all very different from the pomp and circumstance of the Coronation and is part of William’s view of the modernization of the monarchy.
He wants to connect where he feels there is a need. It is hugely important to him and what he feels is his role going forward.”
“I think she would be disappointed that we are still no further on, in terms of tackling homelessness and preventing it than when she was interested and involved in it.”
“For me, 122,000 is a figure that’s way too high,” William said. “We need to get ahead of the curve to stop this becoming more and more fixed.”
“When I can balance it with their schooling, they will definitely be exposed to it,” he spoke in the Sunday Times interview.
“On the school run, we talk about what we see. When we were in London, driving backward and forwards, we regularly used to see people sitting outside supermarkets.”
“It’s in all our interests, it’s the right thing to do, to expose the children, at the right stage, in the right dialogue, so they have an understanding.
They [will] grow up knowing that actually, do you know what, some of us are very fortunate, some of us need a little bit of a helping hand, some of us need to do a bit more where we can help others improve their lives.”
