Prince William praised for anti-bullying campaign
Will Poulter has praised Prince William for helping to fight bullying.
The future British king joined the ‘Maze Runner’ actor at an anti-bullying workshop in London last week and Will was hugely impressed with the royal’s involvement.
He told PEOPLE that William: “seems genuinely invested in wanting to cause a change to the way in which we approach bullying at our schools and ensure schools are a happy and safe place for people to be”.
Will also tweeted about the event, writing: “Amazing vibes and positive energy today at the @AntiBullyingPro event. Honour to have the support of Prince William (sic).”
At the workshop, William was asked to name the top five people he turns to in times of need.
The Duke of Cambridge listed his closest family members, including his grandmother Queen Elizabeth, as the “go to” people in life.
He said: “Catherine, Harry, Father, Grandmother and Grandfather”
The workshops educated pupils and the prince on the problems facing children around cyberbullying and LGBT bullying and William was asked what he would do if he witnessed an act of LGBT bullying.
When questioned on whether he would confront the bully or support the victim, the prince said: “I would start on that side but end up here. I usually find myself right in the middle of problems.”
The royal attended the school alongside staff from his late mother’s charity The Diana Award, who have trained over 16,000 anti-bullying ambassadors in 3,000 schools across Britain.
