Kate wears olive green Ralph Lauren dress for Centrepoint visit

In December 2011, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited homeless charity Centrepoint, which is based in London.  Prince William is a patron of the charity, as was his late mother, Princess Diana.

During the event, Kate and William viewed a group session at Centrepoint’s “Workwise” programme, which enables participants to prepare themselves to find a job.  They engaged in a festive cookery class and William even engaged in some dancing with other members at the charity!

Harriet Armstrong has very kindly allowed us to publish her photographs from the event.  Here’s William dancing:

About Centrepoint:

Centrepoint helps over 1,200 homeless young people between the ages of 16-25 every year by providing more than a place to stay.  Young adults can also find a range of emotional, educational and health support, plus the charity offers encouragement and opportunities to learn new skills, gain independence and grow in confidence.

According to the Centrepoint website, the charity has always been close to the Prince William’ s heart as he used to visit the centre along with his mother during his childhood.  The Prince became Patron of Centrepoint in 2005. In 2009, he slept on the streets of London with Centrepoint’s CEO Seyi Obakin in temperatures as low as -4C to deepen his understanding of homelessness.

Interesting fact about Centrepoint:

Centrepoint’s CEO Seyi Obakin attended William and Kate’s wedding with 20-year-old Shozna, a user of the charity from east London.

William met Shozna at the “100 Women in Hedge Funds” event in 2010, where she made a great impression on the Prince, leading him to break royal protocol and give her a hug!  This led the Prince to later invite Shozna to attend the royal wedding.  For the wedding, Shozna had a dress designed and made specially for her by Raishma Islam, who was a former assistant to Princess Diana’s dress designer Elizabeth Emanuel.  You can read more about Shozna and the Royal Wedding by clicking here.
