Prince William chats to Big Issue seller in London on his 40th birthday – new pictures


The Duke of Cambridge has spent his day chatting with veteran Mr Martin at Tesco’s Supermarket in Hammersmith, London. 

Mr Martin took William under his wing earlier this month and showed him how to sell the Big Issue magazines that give an income to people who are homeless.

The future King has followed in his mother, Princess Diana’s footsteps who also gave her time to help the homeless. 

The late princess took William to visit a shelter at just 11 years old. 

He also plans to teach his children about homelessness in the same way his mother taught him and Harry and young children. 

William has previously argued that homelessness is a “solvable issue” and not just a fact of life and argued that the cost-of-living crisis could make things worse in Britain.

Writing for the Big Issue, which he was featured on the cover, he wrote that homelessness is not “some entrenched phenomenon over which we have little power” and he fears it will get worse with the cost of living crisis. 

In the article which was published to mark his fortieth birthday, William wrote: “Homelessness is not an irrevocable fact of life. It is an issue that can be solved”. 

Speaking about his plans for the future, he wrote: “In the years ahead, I hope to bring George, Charlotte and Louis to see the fantastic organisations doing inspiring work to support those most in need – just as my mother did for me”.
