Prince William Visited A Church-Run Homelessness Initiative In Edinburgh
The Duke of Cambridge headed to a church-run project in Edinburgh centered on homelessness. Prince William was engaged with this public work since 2005. At that time, he just became patron of Centrepoint like his late mother Princess Diana.
The Duke of Cambridge visited a social enterprise called the Grassmarket Community Project. This project is trying to help people how to tackle social injustice and reduce poverty and inequality in the city.
The project was developed in partnership with a local church Greyfriars Kirk which is a part of the Church of Scotland. William also visited the center’s workshop. In this workshop workers are constructing furniture from recycled church pews.
William recalled the tragic of his mother’s death and said, “I was in Balmoral when I was told that my mother had died. Still in shock, I found sanctuary in the service at Crathie Kirk that very morning,”
He also mentioned, “And in the dark days of grief that followed, I found comfort and solace in the Scottish outdoors. As a result, the connection I feel to Scotland will forever run deep.”
