Photos of Prince Williams Sleeping Rough on the Streets of London to Raise Awareness of Youth Homelessness and Centrepoint

Prince William Slept on the Streets for Youth Homelessness

We saw Prince William eating and serving cake at Centrepoint's 40th anniversary last week, and reports have just emerged that the Prince slept rough on the streets to raise awareness about youth homelessness. The CEO of the charity invited him to take part, and on December 15 Wills took him up on it, on a very cold night. He said:

"I cannot, after one night, even begin to imagine what it must be like to sleep rough on London's streets night after night. Poverty, mental illness, drug and alcohol dependancy and family breakdown cause people to become and then stay homeless. Centrepoint's work — along with many other organisations' — in tackling these fundamental causes is desperately important if we are ever to end homelessness in this country. I hope that by deepening my understanding of the issue, I can help do my bit to help the most vulnerable on our streets."

What a great way to raise attention for the charity — are you surprised Prince William did this?

I love this young man. Prince William is just like his mother...thank goodness. I would work for his cause if he needed me too. Princess Diana always went after and brought great awareness for causes like this one too.

It is inspiring, but i am not surprised he did it, because this kind of thing just seems to be in his blood. He's just a good guy!
