Prince William joined a group of homeless British teenagers last Friday to climb a peak in northern England to raise awareness for two charities he is patron of.
The Prince was joined by six teenagers from Centrepoint, a charity for homeless young people, as they walked up Helvellyn, a mountain in the Cumbria region of northeastern England. The group was also joined by members of Mountain Rescue, a charity that depends on over 3,000 volunteers to carry out rescues in the mountains of England and Wales.
Later in the day, William attended a function for WellChild, a charity that provides care and support for sick children and their families, while leading research into childhood illness and disease.
