Prince William goes undercover to highlight a big issue
Long-term homelessness and unemployment are not problems that we generally associate with the Royals, who were born in life for life and take advantage of all security, palaces, and state dinners that come with a privilege.
This could explain the surprise of London commuters on Wednesday when Prince William appeared in the city streets, selling copies of Big Issue magazine.
The publication covers the homeless and housing and is sold by raw sleepers and other people under the breadline to win a weekly income.
“My brother-in-law was in London today and saw a celebrity, so he took a photo of a distance,” Retired Matthew Gardner wrote Matthew Gardner on Linkedin. “Celebrity saw the effort of” secret surveillance “and has crossed the road to investigate more.”
He added that William had released a card machine when his parent told the prince that he had no hand change.
“What an honor to have a private moment with our future king who was humble and who worked quietly in the background, helping the neediest,” said Gardner.
The photos published by Gardner and other Londoners quickly became viral. They became the best possible PR that the Royals could have hoped for since … Well, the triumphant celebrations of the weekend jubilee.
The contrast between these two events has given images added power. On Sunday, we saw Prince William on the balcony of the Buckingham Palace next to his grandmother, waving royally in a sea of subjects. And the following week, he was incognito in the streets, selling magazines for a loose change.
When CNN contacted the Kensington palace to ask questions about William’s passage as a seller of big problems, the staff refused to add anything. It was not a story they were pushing. Was it part of a strategy? Guerrilla Palace Pr? Or was he caught up during volunteer?
The cause’s importance for William was perhaps rooted in childhood. His mother, Diana, took him and his brother Harry to homeless shelters when they were young after nightfall.
It was a problem close to the princess’s heart and to whom William also committed as part of her inheritance. In 2009, he spent a night sleeping hard in the streets of London to discover the realities of homelessness for himself.
These experiences would have provided a precious overview of the problem of homelessness, which has increased in recent years. More than 274,000 people are homeless in England, including 126,000 children, according to research published by Charity Shelter in December of last year. Some 2,700 people sleep hard every night, says the charity, while many families are in unsuitable temporary accommodation.
“We are flooded with calls from families and people of all homeless or about to lose their home,” said Polly Neat, director-general of Shelter, when the data was published.
The cost of the living crisis affecting British families could worsen the situation. And spending time in the “real world” after a weekend of pomp and ceremony at the Buckingham Palace, William showed that he could stay in touch with people who would one day watch him like their monarch.
William’s infiltrated volunteer will have provided good public relations, but that may not have been the intention. For the second online with the throne, the experience was probably to have a better future king.
WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING?
Prince Harry’s libel case in court.
Prince Harry’s defamation case against a newspaper publisher related to a history of his legal battle with the UK’s home office for personal protection was heard in a London court on Tuesday.

Even at 96, the Queen can still surprise. A highlight of the celebrations of the weekend jubilee was the sketch of the comedy that the monarch recorded with the character of the very appreciated children Paddington Bear – and the daughter of the creature said that “his whole family burst” reaction.
Karen Jankel, whose father, Michael Bond, wrote the books that made Paddington a familiar name, told Pa Media: “It was an honor” to have the character included in the festivities. The sketch saw the Queen have Tea in the afternoon with Paddington, even producing a Marmalade sandwich from her handbag.
