Prince William was spotted selling Big Issue on the street after the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Prince William was spotted selling copies of The Big Issue in London, just days after Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Mirror reports that an eagle-eyed passerby was stunned to meet the unassuming royal as he did his part for charity at Westminster.

Retired Met Police Chief Superintendent Matthew Gardner shared photos of William on his LinkedIn account after his brother-in-law’s chance encounter with the heir to the throne at Westminster.

Mr Gardener said: “My brother-in-law was in London today and saw a celebrity so he took a picture from a distance. The celebrity saw the ‘secret surveillance’ effort and walked across the road to investigate further.

“What an honor to have a private moment with our future king who was humble and quietly working in the background helping those most in need. These ‘silent gestures’ often go unnoticed.”

Going on to further explain the encounter, Mr Gardener said his brother-in-law did not run off without reaching into his pocket.

He added: “The finale of this unique occasion was when Prince William asked my brother-in-law if he wanted to buy the Big Issue, to which he replied ‘I have no change’.

“At this point William has produced a moving card machine…you can’t teach that!” Priceless, or should I say ‘princely’.

Prince William and his wife Kate have previously spoken of their involvement in charities close to their hearts and often inspired by his mother, the late Princess Diana. In 2014 he visited homeless charity Centrepoint and in 2018 he and his wife Kate went to The Passage homeless center in Westminster.

William previously revealed how his mum took him to The Passage when he was just 12 with his brother Prince Harry. Princess Diana made homelessness her top charity priority after joining the Royal Family and hasn’t been afraid to meet those directly affected.

A photo taken in 1994 shows the young princes sitting with their mother and chatting with service users at the Passage.

Responding to the photo of Prince William selling the big deal, one royal fan exclaimed, “Love it! Prince William really is the best! He will be a great king,” while fan Celine added, ” Prince William is such a gem.”

And royal watcher Fi agreed: ‘Good William’, while Susan added: ‘He’s his mother’s son! Well done William.’

As the second in line to the throne, after his father Prince Charles, William played a major role in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations over the four-day bank holiday weekend.

He appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with his grandmother, wife Kate and their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis twice during the event, traveled to Wales to meet people attending to the celebrations and was invited to the party at the palace concert. Saturday evening.

He was also among the VIPs at Sunday’s pageant, where a flustered Prince Louis stole the show. The four-year-old was seen standing in his chair, waving his hands in the air, squirming and putting his finger in his ear during the show.

He even blew raspberries on his mother before running to sit on Prince Charles’ lap.

What do you think of Prince William’s selfless efforts?
