What a wonderful video. I'm glad William supports this organization.

I read a quote from William once that has become one of my favorite Royal quotes, and after seeing that video, and tearing up, it somehow comes to mind:
" My mother was the people's princess, I shall be the people's king." He will be too.
It is to William's credit that he does not appear to take for granted that he lives in a palace, and does what he can to help the homeless in a most compassionate way.

Just a little glimpse into William and Catherine's Centerpoint UK visit later this evening.

@Royal Reporter:

William and Kate have arrived at Centrepoint's Camberwell Foyer. She's in an olive green sweater dress.

Kate's in a Ralph Lauren wool dress and her trademark knee high black suede boots.

Some pictures - Getty Images

Poor Catherine seemed to not know what to do her hands, there definitely seemed to be a move to put her hands by her stomach and then a 'no can't do that!!'. It would drive me mad having to constantly think about what I put where!

That's how the rumor mill started with that gesture! She should carry a clutch so she could occupy her hands until she breaks that habit. It seems William's is to clasp his hands, and Kate's to have her hands hover at her abdomen.

Some pictures and a blog entry about William and Catherine's visit to Centerpoint UK.

Duchess Kate: The Cambridges bring Christmas spirit to homeless charity Centrepoint

I also noticed that William has a tendency to fiddle with his tie. I've seen him tug at it near the knot for years. His other trademark fiddling habit is touching his face. He did it a lot when he was a teen. I don't see him doing that as much now.

Now some pictures from the inside are coming through. They're a bit blurry, so I apologize.

I'll post more when they're made available.

Thanks so much for all the pictures and links, Daria. It's nice that the couple's final engagement before Christmas is visiting a charity so close to William's heart. They always seem so relaxed and engaging around young adults, and I hope their visit lifted some spirits during this holiday season.

You're welcome, Baroness . I'm in full agreement. This is a great engagement to have right before Christmas; I'm more than positive that they brought some cheer into these people's lives.

Article from 'The Sun'.

Catherine and William with the performer from 'Centerpoint Got Talent'. What a wonderful memory for all involved.

Catherine's engaging smile.

The flashes were indeed too bright.

I'd love to see a video of this . Catherine seems to find her husband's 'moves' amusing too.

Are you sure about that, Ghostnight? We know you like to hang around here, but make sure you get that Christmas shopping done!

Here's the updated article from 'The Daily Mail'.

Kate Middleton: Duchess of Cambridge's low key visit to Centrepoint homeless shelter | Mail Online

I loved the story of the 'birthday cookie'. Another memory for all involved, and of course William's comment to the young lady who's training to be a nursery nurse about brining his kids over so she could discipline them . These are two wonderful young people who are in touch with the world and have loads and loads of love and compassion to share.

Thanks for posting the video, Ghostnight. It looks cute from the back; too bad there isn't a view from the front. I could see that Kate was diverted from her conversation, though, by William's antics!

Yes, a front view would have given us a chance to see his facial expression live . The clip is still funny though. I think it broke the ice even more.
