It's an issue that is of particular importance to The Duke of Cambridge.

He is a longstanding patron of the charity Centrepoint and even spent two days volunteering with their accommodation services in 2009.

When they were children, Princes William and Harry both visited the charity with their mother, the late Diana Princess of Wales, who was also a patron.
