On June 21, Prince William will celebrate his 40th birthday and open a new chapter in his colorful and exciting royal life.
On this particular occasion, he became the face of a special issue of The Big Issue and spoke about how the late Lady D inspires him to this day.
According to her eldest son, Princess Diana, in her inimitable style, ” was determined to shed light on the overlooked and misunderstood problem of homelessness.”
The Duke of Cambridge wrote an exclusive letter to an audience of millions and made it clear why he wanted to talk about the controversial situation in the world on the eve of his anniversary.
As it turned out, his interest in this problem arose as early as he was 11 years old, when he first visited a homeless shelter with his mother, the Princess of Wales.
The magazine, which is sold by people who want to break out of poverty, also has an interview with William with 60-Year-Old Big Issue salesman Dave Martin, whom he kept the company on the streets of London earlier this month.
The fact is that this publication helps homeless and unemployed people earn a living – they buy a newspaper at cost and keep the profit from the sale.
Just days after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, The Duke of Cambridge was selling the now-iconic magazine on Rochester Row, along with Big Issue salesman Dave Martin.
That day, the tandem sold 32 copies. They then visited The Passage, a nearby charity for the homeless, which provides support to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The Duke became his patron in 2019. This is where Princess Diana brought her young sons to give them a glimpse of the challenges faced by marginalized people.
