Today, Prince William, became Royal Patron of The Passage. The Passage is the UK’s largest resource centre for homeless and insecurely housed people.
Well, this is something, which on hearing, the Duke of Cambridge, William’s mother, late Princess Diana would have been proud about.
Established in 1980, The Passage has since helped over 130,000 people in crisis through its resource centre, homelessness prevention projects and two innovative accommodation services. Prince William first visited The Passage as a child in the year 1993 with his mother Diana.
William has made additional visits at various points over the last twenty-five years.
And today, to commemorate his new role, Kensington Palace shared a photo from Prince William’s first visit to The Passage in 1993. This photo in particular also features the late, Princess Diana and the Duke of Sussex, Harry.

Speaking at The Passage in 2016, Prince William said: “The visits I made as a child to this place left a deep and lasting impression upon me. It told me about how important it is to ensure that everyone in our society, are treated with respect, dignity and kindness. And, are given the opportunities to fulfil their potential in life.
All smiles for the photo, a nine-year-old Prince Harry and an 11-year-old Prince William, sit alongside their mother before marking their visit with a signature in The Passage’s visitor’s book. We know the Duke of Cambridge will continue to work closely and provide even more for the charity in his new role.
