Thanks for sharing!
You won't hear me disagreeing here. The man knows how to wear a tux, and look as if he's extremely comfortable doing it. Very, very suave and debonair. His smile doesn't need a commentary, because it speaks for itself.

Agree here too. I think Wills has an internal sensor of some sort that allows him to sense what the person he's talking to is feeling, because he's always spot on with his reactions.

Love, love, the photo! But what I love more is that William went there as a person who cares, not as a Prince.....
How many people do you know whose first choice to spend some free time is go to a homeless shelter. Shows his true character. Love that he who lives in a Palace , he who will be King, and has everything, cares about those that have nothing. Comfortable with homeless to Kings.Impressive, but not surprising. There is " something" about William- I think part of that something is that he is real. He can drop by for a coffee with homeless guys, and it doesn't feel false.
Here endeth my novel....

Very nice pictures. William looks very relaxed and happy to be there. I haven't seen him like this for ages.

You summed up my feelings about this event (and the person in question). He's a wonderful and caring individual, who truly wants to make a difference.

Great descriptions!. That's what he does on pretty much every engagement he undertakes.

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...
