The Passage announced the Duke of Cambridge visited its Resource Centre in London three times during the lockdown in November. He helped the other volunteers to prepare hot meals for people who had recently been moved into emergency hotel accommodation from the streets. William also served food and spoke with residents about their life experiences.

The Passage’s chief executive, Mick Clarke said the charity was "delighted" to welcome Prince William as a volunteer.

He said: “This year, more than ever, our army of volunteers have enabled The Passage to keep our vital services running throughout both lockdowns and the time in-between.

"From our emergency food hub to fundraising, outreach to essential office support, our Home for Good programme to our residential projects, we are extremely fortunate to have such a versatile and committed group of supporters.

"We were delighted to welcome our Royal Patron, The Duke of Cambridge, as a volunteer during the second lockdown, where he helped to prepare and deliver food parcels to our clients in our emergency and regular accommodation projects.

"Volunteers are, and always will be, the lifeblood of our organisation.”

The Duke first visited The Passage in 1993 with his mother Princess Diana, who was keen to teach her sons about homelessness.

He has also made several visits since and is also a patron for the charity.

In 2016, he said: "The visits I made as a child to this place left a deep and lasting impression upon me – about how important it is to ensure that everyone in our society, especially the poorest, are treated with respect, dignity and kindness, and are given the opportunities to fulfil their potential in life."
