The tour was part of a visit to a scheme which helps to pay for some of the poorest students go to university. The Southwark Scholarship Scheme removes the financial burden of going to university for high achievers who would otherwise have struggled to be able to afford it.

The Duke had his chance soon after his speech, trying games with titles such as Hamster: Accidental World Domination, Vacuum Panic and Smiley Dodgems, which were made by previous young design award winners.
William spent a good portion of his time trying his hand at Vacuum Panic, where the aim is to clean a bedroom before 'mum' comes in to check it.
"I'm not cleaning particularly well, I'm just going around in circles," he told designer Charlie Hutton-Pattermore as his fingers flicked over the iPad screen in front of him.

Charles said that currently only 29 per cent of young people volunteer regularly, but wants 50 per cent of youngsters aged 10-20 to volunteer by 2020.
