Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has vowed to sleep on the streets of London for a night to experience what hundreds of young people face everyday.
Following after her husband’s footsteps, Kate, 30, will be participating in “Sleep Out,” an annual campaign designed to raise awareness of London’s growing homeless rates. The campaign is expected to raise more than $225,000 this year. Prince William participated in the campaign in 2009, where he slept on the street among London’s homeless. He admitted that it was a “rough” experience.
“I hope that by deepening my understanding of the issue, I can help do my bit to help the most vulnerable on our streets,” Prince William had told ABC News. “I cannot, after one night, even begin to imagine what it must be like to sleep rough on London’s streets night after night,” he added.
