Despite having recently welcomed the newest addition to his family, Prince Louis, Prince William is already back at work after a short paternity leave.
And it’s recently been announced that the Duke will be embarking on a ‘major project’ as one of his first tasks back at work, in support of the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.
Kensington Palace announced the Prince William will be joining Nick Knowles and the rest of the DIY SOS crew on their TV show, as they work on a project to help those affected by the devastating tragedy.
The palace revealed, ‘On Tuesday 15th May The Duke of Cambridge will join the crew of
@DIYSOS on a major project to support people affected by the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower.’
Regarding the details of the build, the palace also shared, ‘The @BBCOne show, hosted by @MrNickKnowles, is building a new community centre and replacing a boxing club destroyed by the fire. The final shows will be broadcast in two parts later this year.
‘The Duke will visit the new site in Ladbroke Grove, joining people who have volunteered their time and expertise to complete the project. He will meet with @MrNickKnowles and the @DIYSOS crew, join one of the volunteer teams and meet local residents affected by the fire.’
The royal family have worked extensively with those affected by the July 2017 fire, first visiting them just a few days after the blast broke out.
In fact, Prince William made the first visit to the community alongside the Queen. And later, he also made a trip to a centre supporting victims with his brother, Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle has even included the people affected by the fire in her very first work as a member of the royal family. Some months back, reports surfaced that she had been making private visits to victims of the tragedy, to find out how she could support them.
Of course, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan and Prince Harry all live just a few miles away from the site of Grenfell Tower, at Kensington Palace.
Almost all senior members of the royal family also attended a recent memorial service for those who lost their lives in the tower on that night.
