William and Harry Pay BBC’s “DIY SOS” A Visit in Manchester
Princes William and Harry today got their hands dirty during a trip to Manchester, where they met the team that produces the BBC series DIY SOS. The show is currently transforming several buildings on one street into homes for ex-service personnel.
Wearing white hardhats bearing their names and blue safety vests, the two Princes spoke with the 240 builders and volunteers, as well as the street’s existing residents, before being given tasks of their own. Prince William was handed a paint roller to paint a kitchen, while Prince Harry was put out in the garden to lay pavers.
The brothers’ visit was a resounding success with both the show’s crew and with the street’s residents, with one resident saying that his wife was “well chuffed” with the bearded Prince Harry.
As part of the project, eight buildings will be transformed into homes and the facades of 62 further homes in the area will be rejuvenated. A support centre is also to be built to provide support for the veterans with mental and physical health issues, as well as to provide them with re-training in different fields.Filed under The United Kingdom
