Hopefully they'll raise a bunch of $$$. I wish I could see this exhibit. Sounds interesting.

I don't see him has being dedicated to anything.

He does a bit here and there - a bit of military service, a bit of charity work, a bit of holidaying - but no dedication to anything - yet. It might come but it isn't there yet - in ten years it might be but a couple of activities don't equate to dedication to anything to me.

Well he is still young. He seems pretty dedicated to his military training and determined to make something of it.
As far as charity, he has increased his engagements (as his training allows) and is starting to get more involved with the charities that interest him (homeless, youth, etc).

I believe that it won't truly be William's time to shine until his father becomes the King. At that point, William will have a much higher public profile and we'll see more of what he's truly passionate about. If he did more public engagements now, he'd be criticized for shirking his training. If he becomes a full-time pilot, he'll be accused of shirking his public duty. But honestly, until he becomes the Duke of Cornwall, we can't expect to see a lot of him in public.

I agree, particularly as their seems to be a rise in homelessness due to these harsh times (recession).

I agree. He should try and have a look at what charities are out ther that he is interested in and could really need some help so that when the time comes, he can step up into a more active charitable role.

You say charities as plural, but isn't this the same homeless charity that William slept in the rough on the streets for a while back?

He slept "roughly" for centrepoint.
The funds raised from his pictures are going to the charity Crisis.

Here are the websites for both charities in case anyone wants information:

Crisis - Crisis - Home (Portraits are being auctioned off for in April)

Centrepoint - Give homeless young people a future — Centrepoint

Lumutqueen is correct - it was Centrepoint. This is an article from it From Prince to pauper: how William spent the night on the freezing streets - Times Online

Prince William as Patron attended a Royal Gala Reception for the
'A Positive View 2010' exhibition at Christie's, King Street, London.

The event was to auction off a selection of photographs, which
includes his diptych, seen in the background, two photographs
taken by the prince and former Crisis client Jeff Hubbard of each
other, under the direction of the photographer Rankin.

Thx for all the pics. William looks so handsome especially that first pic of him walking down the street.

He does look very hansome! Looking through the photos I didn't see any of Jeff Hubbard, the homeless man who participated in doing the photographs with William. Surely he would have been invited to this event.

A UNIQUE art work combining photographs which Prince William and an ex-homeless man took of each other sold for £24,000 at auction.

The double portrait, known as a diptych, of William with hair controversially darkened by studio lighting and editing, and former rough sleeper-turned photographer Jeff Hubbard, was sold at Christie’s in London to raise money for homeless charity Crisis.

According to the article posted above by rchat, Jeff was there as William made a reference to him in his speech:

“Jeff, it was such fun working with you under the master that is Rankin. Thank you Rankin, especially for the mop of black hair,” he said in his speech.

(His reference to his black hair in the picture is funny. )

That's amazing that the diptych portrait went for that much! Good on them!
