Yesterday in the neighborhood of Camberwell, London, Prince William and wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge paid an official visit to Centrepoint, of which the Duke has been a patron for six years, according to the Telegraph. They were greeted outside by a number of press outlets, but once inside were able to meet some of the charity’s residents.
Seyi Obakin, the center’s chief executive told the Telegraph of William’s patronage, “For somebody of his ilk, of his own accord to want to come here and meet them is a powerful motivator – says there is somebody who cares.”
Catherine showed off her culinary skills by making mince pies and gingerbread cookies. Her Royal Highness made a cookie for Tash, one of Centrepoint’s residents. “Kate, I mean Catherine, made me this cookie for my 18th birthday, and it’s really beautiful,” Tasha told Sky News. “I’m going to cherish it, it really means a lot to me.”
Resident Vanessa Boateng teased William, according to Daily Express reporter Richard Palmer. “Prince William, discussing his wedding suit, seemed pleased when Vanessa Boateng, 18, told him: ‘Your swag was on point.’” Palmer tweeted from inside the gathering. “He started dancing. William, a fan of hip hop, seemed to know what she was talking about anyway.”
This is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s final engagement before year’s end. Catherine is expected which charities she will become a patron of in the beginning of 2012. The newlyweds with spend the holiday with other members of the royal family at Sandringham.
