Sure are a lot of photos for a "private" event. If it started that way, it sure didn't end up that way.

Anyway, glad he likes smoothies...

I think "private" means that the media are not invited. No pix have appeared in the UK press. These pix are by centrepoint staff and attendees.

William's intent was a private visit. Centrepoint is the one who took the pictures and posted them. Can't blame them for being proud of their patron.

Really great pictures but, as an aside, I wonder why is he playing table tennis right handed?

A lot of left handed people play some sports right handed. My brother is a leftie but he golfs and plays tennis right handed.

My brother was ambidextrous. He said that anything learned, he did with his right hand; e.g., writing or using a bat during baseball. Anything that was innate; e.g., eating or combing his hair, was done with his left hand.

I agree. William and his staff didn't publicize his visit and Centrepointe Staff and clients chose to share their private photos.

I think that what this shows is that although most of what we see the royal do are through the press and official engagements, William's off the record visit to Centrepoint solidifies the view that a lot of what they do is out of the public eye and behind the scenes. It very easily could have come and gone without anyone the wiser except for those few pictures that proud staff and clients were happy to share with us.

I agree. I've always admired the late Queen Juliana's determination to make visits without too much pomp and ceremony. Not every visit by a royal needs to be accompanied by the media. At times it seems like royals (not just William) can't seem to please anyone with their engagements. If the press is invited to everything then there seems to be complaints about the cost (security) and need to be in front of the cameras.

However if they make a private visit then the complaint is that they don't work enough because the press did not record the event. Or if a few private photos are released by people present then it's no longer "private."

While I agree that William no doubt works hard to supportthese several organisation she is involved with, his 92 years old grandfather Prince Philip is patron of over 800 organisations. It would be nice to see William, Kate and Harry take on many, many more responsibilities and commitments from the older generation.

Not sure how you can compare the two, it makes little sense.

royal-blue, the younger royals workload will increase over time.

It's pretty much up to The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh to hand more responsibility over to younger royals. William has stated in an interview that they are always asking their grandparents on what more they could do for them. The ball really lies in The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh's corner. William & Catherine and Harry will do what's required of them.

You are correct. There are numerous people who were involved in the upbringing of the Princes and should be recognized for that. They all did a good job. :)
