OK that picture makes me cry. Again, the future King sipping a mug of coffee like anybody else. Another website I was on this AM had great pictures- think it was the Daily Mail.
No it is not the first time he has dropped in. I will never forget watching a documentary about William, and him talking to a young man who in the past had struggled with hunger and drug abuse. The guy was so anxious, and embarrassed , but William put him at ease, and treated him with so much respect. Then he met a man who had not eaten in days, and again was so caring. He also slept on a street for a night with Centerpoint.
Not surprised that he's done this- first because it's William, and secondly, he's dropped in at least 3 times before, and he usually makes a Xmas visit. Sometimes he also does a visit at the Royal Marsden.
But again the main reason I'm not surprised is because it's William, I'd be surprised if he didn't. They call him amazing. That's putting it mildly to say the least. But what other word can you use? What other word is there?
Now if Kate will do a Xmas EACH or other hospice visit, life will be good!

These just seem to go together.

From Centrepoint

The Duke of Cambridge chats about jobs and health with homeless young people.
Quote:
Getting a job, interview techniques, healthy breakfasts and his wife's hair were just some of the chats between Centrepoint Patron The Duke of Cambridge and homeless young people during a visit.

The Duke of Cambridge visited our newly refurbished health and wellbeing centre in Soho, London, ton Wednesday morning to meet young people, staff and some of the UK’s top business leaders for a special mentoring session.

I'm sorry but he won't be. He could be the Duke of Cambridge that does that, or even the Prince of Wales but he won't do that as king.

He will not be speaking out because of the risk of being controversial or political or even just giving an opinion. HMQ is lauded for not having said anything even mildly interesting on her own behalf in over 60 yrs as Queen. Charles (no constitutional role) is chastised and criticised for speaking out whilst he is Prince of Wales and it is said that he knows he cannot continue once he is king.

No different for William - that is the reality.

This time of year must be very busy for organizations like Centrepoint that help the homeless in the UK. I'm glad to see that their patron stopped by today to show his support.

Yes, but there are different ways of speaking than just sharing your opinion or view. William will continue to show support for causes ( his showing support for a homeless shelter is a way of saying homeless deserve help, )and he will listen with his heart to people who society turns away from, as he already does. He says a lot without saying a word- be that an opinion / a view/ or otherwise. The purpose of not sharing an opinion is to be King of all the subjects. But also part of being a good King is to speak for those who cannot be heard. And he can do that without giving an opinion, a view, or even saying a word.
If a King cannot speak for those who cannot be heard, why have one?

If William is totally bald the next time we see him, we will know that Catherine scalped him for that remark. I had always heard that the reason she doesn't cut her hair is because he likes it long.

Love the pics.
Can imagine Kate being sarcastic with Will- " Thanks so much for saying that, dear!"
And Wills- you're one of the handsomest men I know of, but your hair isn't the greatest either!

WE will have to agree to disagree. The UK has a constitutional monarchy and William will not be able to "change reality" . Change comes thru government.

I dont wish to offend anyone but there seems to be a romanticised view of what a monarchy is, or perhaps it's just that William is admired.

His chance to speak out is now or as Prince of Wales - it must happen before he is king.

We will have to wait and see what the fallout is from Charles's spider letters. I think William is more subtle than Charles and able to get his point across effectively without crossing any lines

If a King cannot speak for those who cannot be heard, why have one?
I was thinking along the same lines. Thank you for clarifying.

That is an interesting mental image. I have no doubt that she'll tease him right back for that one.

That is true, and even if he's unable to do this as king, I'm sure that as a Prince of Wales he'll do a great deal. Time will tell.

Or Kate actually bought William a wooly toupee when they were in Australia and he can open it on Christmas morning.

Or maybe, one day, she might cut it! I think she would actually look quite good with a conservative bob. Not too-too short, but just enough to lift the weight off her neck. Done well she would look very smart at the drop-of-a-hat, in any outfit. No fuss or bother, which might be something she is longing for now with one child and another on the way. Not saying she is but she might. Would make life easier for her for sure.

Like Princess Mary of Denmark; hers is a more manageable length than Kate's IMO. Both women have lovely hair.

Whoops, sorry; wrong thread...
