This week, Prince William, the second-in-line to the British throne, was observed on the streets of London selling copies of the “Big Issue” magazine, a title generally peddled by the homeless.
Wearing the company’s red cap and vest, Prince William was spotted near Westminster on Wednesday peddling a magazine that allows homeless people to earn money through its sale to the general public.
In a LinkedIn post accompanied by a photo of William, retired chief superintendent Matthew Gardner described his brother-in-encounter law’s with the 39-year-old prince as a “secret meeting with our future king, who was modest and working quietly in the background, assisting the most needy.”
“Prince William asked my brother-in-law if he wanted to purchase a copy of the “Big Issue,” to which he responded, “I have no change.” At this time, William manufactured a mobile card machine. That is unteachable.”
As the number of people carrying cash in Britain has decreased over the past several years, an increasing number of homeless people have turned to mobile card readers.
His administration refused to comment on the report.
The Platinum Jubilee, commemorating Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year reign, was recently celebrated for four days by Prince William, his wife Kate, and the rest of the British royal family.
As part of her charitable activities, the late Princess Diana accompanied William and his brother Harry on trips to destitute shelters when they were young.
