Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are scheduled to accompany Prince William on an upcoming royal engagement to a homeless center, echoing a tradition set by their late grandmother, Princess Diana, who made similar visits in the 1990s. This initiative is part of Prince Charles’ broader efforts to address homelessness, launched earlier this year with a five-year program aimed at tackling this issue across the UK.

In his statement about the initiative, Prince William emphasized the importance of ensuring everyone in society has access to a safe and secure home, along with the dignity and support they deserve. Named “Homewards,” this program aims to collaborate with communities to prevent homelessness and provide hope to those affected.

The engagement holds particular significance as Prince George, aged 10 and second in line to the throne after his father, Prince William, prepares for upcoming changes in royal travel rules. A ban is set to restrict which royals can fly together starting next year, potentially impacting future travel plans for Prince George, Princess Charlotte (third in line to the throne), and their father. Currently, they are permitted to travel together, but this may change when Prince George turns 12 in July 2025.

As the eldest child of Prince William and Princess Catherine, Prince George’s upcoming birthday on July 22 marks another milestone in his royal upbringing. His participation in charitable engagements alongside his siblings underscores a commitment to continuing the royal family’s legacy of public service and philanthropy.
