While visiting the charity's headquarters — their "aim is to provide homeless people with support to transform their own lives" — William got to meet with volunteers and staff, and he was touched by their hospitality. "40 years. 40 years of life-changing work @PassageCharity," he wrote on social media. "Every time I come here, I am touched by the warmth and friendliness, and the dignity and respect you show to everyone who comes through your door."

"Over the many years that I have visited The Passage, first with my mother when I was just a small boy, I have developed a great affection for you all," he continued. "I am always so impressed to see and hear the difference that The Passage makes to the lives of people who are experiencing homelessness. Thank you to everyone for your continuous work. W."

William — who took over as royal patron from his mother in 2019 — also recalled trips with the late princess back in the day.
