In honor of his late mother, Princess Diana, Prince William is said to be “absolutely committed” to addressing homelessness in the UK.

As he prepares his first significant policy intervention in an area important to his mother’s heart, the future king is believed to have a “steely determination” to fix the matter.

The Duke of Cambridge plans to start projects in a variety of sites across the UK next week, ahead of Diana’s 62nd birthday on July 1.

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.”

William was just 11 when his mom took him to a shelter.

“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.”

The prince recently announced that there are “absolutely” plans for communal homes to be developed on his 130,000-acre private estate, the Duchy of Cornwall.

“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.

“He has an authenticity and ability to relate to others that many envy,” the insider continued.

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.”

When Diana first took William to a shelter run by the Passage, of which he is now a patron, he was only 11 years old.

“My mother introduced me to the cause of homelessness from quite a young age, and I’m really glad she did,” he said earlier this year in an interview for Comic Relief.

“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.”

The 41-year-old, who is also the patron of another homeless organization, Centrepoint, is particularly concerned about youth homelessness, which will be addressed as part of his new plans.

According to Centrepoint, the number of 16 to 24-year-olds who were homeless or in danger of becoming homeless in 2022 was 122,000, a 12,000 increase in five years.

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.”

Meanwhile, continuing in his mother’s footsteps, the Prince has been debating “when is the right time” to introduce his three children to a homeless organization.

“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.”
