Princess Diana's Boys: William & Harry Now

Like mother, like sons. The late Princess's boys continue the causes she held so dear


THEN: As a Patron of Centrepoint charity for the homeless, Diana chatted with young people about their plight during a visit to a London hostel in 1997. The princess often took her sons with her when she dropped in on shelters. "She said, 'I want them to see what it's like for the homeless, the down-and-outs,'" recalled Ken Wharfe, Diana's former bodyguard.

NOW: William, who took over his mother's position as Patron, checks in with a resident of a Centrepoint shelter. "I was influenced a lot by my visits to hostels with my mother when I was younger," William has said. "I learned a lot from it, more so that I [knew] at the time."
