Prince William visits Birmingham
Britain’s Duke of Cambridge is set to attend three engagements in Birmingham today (07.12.15).
The 33-year-old royal – who is a Aston Villa fan – will head to the West Midlands this morning and stop by the Saltley Academy to meet young people involved in the Football For Peace project and attend the special peace tournament.
Football for Peace, a national charity, is a project run by ambassadors who organise mini peace tournaments based on equality, diversity and inclusion for young people.
Kashif Siddiqi, founder of Football For Peace, told the Birmingham Mail newspaper: “Our aim through the Football for Peace process is to harness the power of the beautiful game to unite people in today’s hostile climate.
“We inspire understanding and help break down misunderstandings between communities and cultures, which can transcend from grass roots to governments.”
Later on, the handsome Prince will make his way to Bournville College to learn about the anti-bullying work of The Diana Award – named after his late mother Princess Diana – and take part in activities that highlight equality.
Before heading home, William will also call into the homelessness charity St Basil’s, which he has previously visited last year and the year before.
