William is reunited with a woman who made friendship bracelets for him and Harry during a visit to a homeless shelter as he returns with wife Kate – but jokes his brother ‘never got his’
- Prince William and Kate visited homeless shelter The Passage in London today
- Duke of Cambridge was reintroduced to Gladys who works at St Vincent centre

- Kate and William then took part in a Christmas arts and craft session at centre
This is the moment Prince William cracked a joke at his little brother’s expense on a visit to a homeless centre in London with wife Kate on Monday.
When Kate and William arrived at The Passage, a hospital and homeless centre the prince visited with his late mother as a child, its chief executive Mick Clarke introduced them to a woman named Gladys, and reminded William of their previous meeting – at which Gladys had gifted him with two friendship bracelets.
‘One for you and one for Harry,’ Mr Clarke explained, prompting William’s wisecrack: ‘Harry never got his, Gladys.’
Prince William, 36, has made a number of trips to The Passage – some in a private capacity – since his first visit with his mother Princess Diana and little brother Harry back in 1994, when the princes were 12 and 10.
On Tuesday he returned with his wife Kate in tow, and the couple took part in a festive arts and crafts session at the charity’s St Vincent Centre in Victoria, which William had officially reopened in 2016 following a refurbishment.

During their visit Kate helped make bead bracelets and laughed that daughter ‘Charlotte would love making these’.
William was asked to help make a ‘Welcome to Xmas Dinner’ sign and given an ‘E’ to cut out.
Kate laughed and raised an eyebrow as William said: ‘My son knows I’m useless at this, Catherine is the artsy one.’

The royals’ light-hearted remarks at their royal engagement come after rumours of a rift between the Cambridges and Sussexes following the announcement that Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, are set to move away from Kensington Palace to set up home at Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor.
Royal sources have said there has been no falling out between the two couples, but simply that the two Duchesses are ‘very different people’.
Kate was reported to have been left in tears after Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid’s dress fitting, ahead of Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May.
Despite rumours of a rift, royal insiders have revealed Meghan and Harry are set to stay with Kate and William again when the royals head to Sandringham this Christmas.

While visiting the centre earlier today, William spoke out about the dangers of Spice and the royal couple sat in on a roundtable discussion on mental heath and homelessness.
The Duke first visited the charity in 1994 with his younger brother Harry when the pair were 12 and 10, alongside their mother Diana, Princess of Wales. Since then William has visited three more times, twice in a private capacity.
Afterwards The Passage’s chief executive Mick Clarke said of the royals: ‘They were genuinely shocked at how cheap spice is and the effects it can have. This is a drug that targets the poorest of the poor.
‘We’re talking about something that one puff could hospitalise you or lead to your death. It’s clearly targeting the lowest of the low, those who have fallen on hard times.
‘In both discussions they had real empathy and they really care about the issues and the poorest in society. They take the role they have, to raise these issues, very seriously’.
