The Duke of Cambridge has been helping to decorate a boxing club in Kensington to replace one destroyed by the Grenfell Tower fire alongside survivors for a DIY SOS special.

William, 36, joined crew members of the BBC programme and survivors in May this year as they worked towards replacing the club and building a new community centre.

In the BBC special set to air on Wednesday, the Prince makes an emotional speech about the scale of the tragedy, which killed 71 people, saying: 'I think everyone has been shocked at how brutal and horrendous it all was.”

The Duke of Cambridge will visit Tyneside today (Friday) as part of the Great Exhibition of the North celebrations.

Prince William will first visit Sage Gateshead, which is one of the Great Exhibition's three 'hub' venues.

At the music centre, he will get to listen to performances and meet performers, including those from the centre's CoMusica programme which uses music to engage young people who are experiencing challenges in life.

He will then tour the new PROTO: The Emerging Technology Centre in Gateshead, whose work will involve testing and creating new digital solutions for businesses, and - after watching demonstrations of new technology such as motion capture and augmented reality - he will then perform the building's official opening.

Next, the Prince will attend a reception at Baltic to meet some of those, including volunteers, who have helped make the Great Exhibition happen and then, for his final visit, will head across the river into Newcastle to see one of the exhibits at Ryder Architecture Cooper's Studios.

We have two ChronicleLive reporters and photographers to bring you live updates, pictures and video throughout the visit.

I have been very pleased with the type and number of engagements for William this past week. He has been in sterling form the past year, really. It has actually made me like him again!

I am also glad to see a younger royal doing day aways to parts of the UK not immediately around London! I also just have a soft spot for Newcastle. One of my favorite cities in the UK!

TLLK 09-09-2018 12:03 PM

I agree Zairia that it is important and necessary for the members of the BRF to be seen around the nation and not limit themselves to London or its nearby cities. :smile: I am aware that they do engagements throughout the country, but unfortunately national media coverage is often limited to a select few.

Anne, Charles and co do many engagements outside of the home counties, but the KP set rarely does and they are the media focus.

Of course, politically/socially the home counties are an understandable focus, but I am hoping for wider travel as they settle into full-time roles. William has certainly been getting out into the country more the past year. :flowers:

In tonight’s episode DIY SOS Grenfell, Prince William paid another visit to the site of the community centre where he met Nabil, who lost several members of his family in the blaze.

The royal told Nabil: “I can only imagine what you’ve had to go through, you and your family, it’s truly horrendous.”

“Having the support it’s been really bad and it’s been really slow and not everyone is getting the support they should be getting,” Nabil revealed, leaving Prince William stunned.

The 36-year-old asked: “In which areas? What areas is the support lacking in?” “Fighting back tears, Nabil told him: “On the mental side and physical side.

“It’s just very, it’s a very hard process and hopefully with guidance and support, I’m not saying it will solve problems, but I saw what happened.”

“The shock is still probably enormous,” Prince William replied taking Nabil’s hand in his own.

“I hope that what is happening here is a sign that there are a lot of people in your community who care and want to help and this will be a lasting legacy toward that support.

“I know those are just words to you but there are a lot of people who care about what has happened to this community and want it to get better.”

He continued: “I hope it bring you some kind of solace “You stay strong, it really means a lot to meet you.”

Viewers were left in tears by the moment which showed Prince William very much involved with the project and wanting to know about Nabil was coping.

“Look at that though, he’s just a genuinely good bloke. #DIYSOS,” one viewer wrote.

Another added: “For god sake prince William. Anyone got any tissues #DIYSOS.”

A third shared: “Prince William once again showing he’s just a thoroughly decent, compassionate human. Wonderful to see. #diysos @DIYSOS.”

When you watch the video, it’s pretty harmless. The children at the table are neither Chinese nor Japanese. William corrected himself immediately, and it was a very successful visit.

It’s not like a few months ago when the U.K. Foreign secretary introduced his Chinese wife, as Japanese, to a room full of dignitaries from Japan.

Some quotes from William’s visit to Acorns Hospice.


It was a delight to have Prince William here today. He took so much time to speak to patients, staff and parents. He asked about our roles here and how we help the children. He was fantastic with everyone.

- Lindsay Homer, head nurse at Acorns Hospice


I’m the proudest mum in the world. Not only that but Prince William said ‘Come on mum, get your phone out and take a photo!’ which was so lovely!”

- Sarah Green


He had so much time for us. Esther had an eight-hour operation just last week and he asked how she’s getting on which was so nice. We also had some banter about football because I’m a Liverpool fan and my family are all Villa. He said as long as Prince George doesn’t end up supporting Chelsea he’ll be happy!

- Michael Robinson


Prince William was just genuine and lovely. He spent a lot of time with us, asking about Esther and her condition and how much we rely on Acorns as parents. He’s such a lovely man. You can tell he just really cares.

- Claire Robinson, whose daughter Esther has been coming to Acorns for the past 15 years


I’m bursting with pride, it was such a massive honour and he was just so down to earth. He asked about the facilities and how I’m getting on. It’s just been a great day I’ll never ever forget.

- Bradley Addison, Acorns Hospice ambassador

Mary Beard is hilarious. Talking away at William. I may not agree with her very one dimensional characterization of Catherine, but I agree with her about Latin. Learn a bit of Latin and Spanish, Italian and a lot of English come much easier. I've never regretted my Latin. (and that's off topic, sorry!)

I do think it worth noting how open minded the honors award process must be for Mary to be so honored.

Also note that he is starting out his engagements quite early in the year after quite lot of unfair criticism on this front a few years ago. I say unfair as he worked with the Air Ambulance at the time.

Osipi 01-03-2019 01:53 PM

Actually, my opinion is that working with EAAA was one of the best things that he was allowed to do for a period of time. True life experience that serves to give a good understanding of how things are is perhaps the best teacher.

William, today, could identify with those he met today because he's actually been there, done that and earned the t-shirt. :biggrin:

William was exposed to "true life" from Sandhurst onward. Whatever the Brass say is quite irrelevant, the troops will make up their own minds regardless. That time in the Army and then his transfer and stint as co-pilot and then a pilot with 22 Squadron RAF was definitely a "true life experience which co-incidentally allowed William and Catherine to begin family life while posted to RAF Valley.

With the decision to outsource Rescue work, William left the RAF in September 2013 and in July 2015 he commenced work as an EAAA pilot, working 20 hours a week until he retired in July 2017 to move to full-time royal duties. Whatever else this was, a "true life experience" was not it, as there are few others would not need to juggle a stressful full-time job, married life and new parenthood.

We are clearly moving to a time when the Cambridge's and Sussex' will have very busy days on an ongoing basis. A lot of that will be behind the scenes, private meetings, working in the office and some of it will be public engagements. The problem is that it is only the public engagements that get reported on.

Here's an article about the Duke's attendance at the Mental Health Matters forum today:


** dailymail: Prince William blames the stiff upper lip mentality of his grandmother's war generation..**

Ista 01-23-2019 03:55 PM

:previous: In typical DM fashion the headline is misleading, and makes it sound as though William is being disrespectful of his grandmother and the WWII generation. That's not quite what he said. But hey, why let the actual quotes get in the way of the headlines?

Osipi 01-23-2019 04:10 PM

Actually, I thought that the headline was right on the mark (for the Fail, its unusual). William goes on to explain that amid all the horrors of the war, one just kept on keeping on and bottled things up and tried to get through the horrors of war the best they could.

I didn't live during those times but the war and its effects were felt world wide.
Especially in London and the UK. People lived not knowing what was coming the next day or if their loved ones would return. They had to survive and having a mental breakdown was antithesis to being able to keep on their toes and alert. Hence the "stiff upper lip".

I think, though, I identified with William most when he talked about handling the traumas he faced during his own experiences. After witnessing those kind of things, its *very* important to sit and talk about it and process it. That's why debriefing here for our fire and rescue squads are mandatory should there be a need for it.

Ista 01-23-2019 04:21 PM

My impression of the headline and captions was different than yours. I thought the choice of words implied that the current generation's mental health problems could be laid at the door of the WWII generation, and as I noted, that's not really what he said. I thought all of his comments were very compassionate, for everyone involved.

Osipi 01-23-2019 04:35 PM

William does have the capacity to speak from the heart much like his grandmother does. He's sincere.

We do learn and tend to follow our parent's examples. My parent's era was the WWII era and, trust me, no one talked about mental issues or it was rare even to have what we call "drama". Come to think of it, we said things like "expecting" instead of pregnant. Television censors cut out a reference to the "W.C.".

My generation had the answer to mental illnesses. Drugs. They were doled out plentiful as many ailments we know more about today were treated with "mother's little helpers". PMS hadn't been invented yet. That, I lived through. :biggrin:

This, is perhaps why we see the title differently. My kids (all in their 40s) would probably see it the same way you do.

I agree, William does have that gift, and it's always a bit surprising, because his public affect is much cooler. Then he speaks from the heart, and demonstrates his vulnerability, and you realize it's a case of still waters.

I suspect that I am very close to you in age, since my children are in their thirties, but the difference in the reading of the "tone" of the DM headline may come down to me being primed to assume that the DM puts a negative spin on anything if they can. When did I get so cynical :eek:

Osipi 01-23-2019 04:54 PM

I guess just like broken clocks are right twice a day, its possible for the Fail to publish a good journalistic story without a negative slant to it. ;)

Lilyflo 01-23-2019 05:23 PM

The DM headline & article tone is deliberate clickbait for those who see millennials as 'snowflakes' for talking about their mental health and they'd prefer some of the old fashioned "stiff upper lip" of war time Brits. This attitude is exactly what William is up against of course because traditionally, our culture has been to repress & conceal emotion.

I think William & his generation of royals are doing a grand job with their mental health work & his mother would be so proud of him.

Huh? many British celebrities have spoken about their own mental health battles. They were doing a lot of mental health campaigns.

Who exactly? There’s no reason for William to lie, and what he says makes absolute sense considering the stigma around mental health.
