Prince William’s team asked Steve Bartlett of Dragon’s Den to spend the day with him visiting businesses in the south of England that are doing great work to end homelessness. Bartlett, who is an advocate for the Homewards programme, said it was “100% possible” to tackle homelessness in five years and said William was “deeply passionate” about the cause.
While they were there they bumped into Gazza. The former footballer Paul Gascoigne gave the Prince of Wales a kiss on the cheek after they unexpectedly met in a sandwich shop.
William visited the Pret A Manger in Bournemouth, Dorset, on Thursday, to discuss its plans to expand The Pret Foundation’s programme to help 500 people experiencing homelessness get jobs at Pret shops around the country.
