July 10, 2011: From the Hollywood glitterati to a dance troupe of young people in Skid Row as just reported by CTV.ca, Princess Kate and Prince William carry with them the spirit of Princess Diana. The late Princess not only brought attention and support to those in poverty, but she was also a supporter of the arts and ballet, most notably the City Ballet of London. On Skid Row, William and Kate are being entertained by children who live below the poverty line — rapidly following two glamorous events.
Reflecting Princess Diana
It is interesting to note that just before leaving Canada, it was reported that Prince William “told three grieving sisters who lost their mother that he understands their loss and that he misses his own mother every day.” Prince William Speaks About Loss.
Also in reflecting the Diana spirit, reports have said that Princess Kate has shown a true interest in talking with people in Canada and sharing her own concerns about William in the military and her desire to have a family.
By the time they headed to California, the couple had endeared themselves to the people of Canada.
Skid Row dancers
Now, just before leaving their whirlwind tour of Southern California, the newlyweds went to visit Inner-City Arts, a nonprofit organization that has enriched the lives of children of poverty since 1989. The group has served more than 10,000 children through after school programs and instructions for teachers who then bring art into the classroom.
Gather Celebs says: “The visit will highlight two of the prince’s charitable interests: assisting homeless youth and promoting the arts.
“It is so exciting,” said Cynthia Harnisch, president of Inner-City Arts. “Everyone is feeling so uplifted that the most famous couple in the world are coming to their campus, are visiting their neighborhood.”
“I didn’t think there was still kings and queens,” said Lorenzo Perez, a 19-year-old from South Los Angeles. “It’s like a Disney movie.” Prince William, Catherine head to skid row to visit Inner-City Arts
A patron of the arts and sensitive to poverty
In addition to being a patron of the arts, this is what the late Mother Teresa said about Princess Diana:
“Diana was a wonderful woman and mother. She helped wherever there was poverty and suffering. All nuns will pray for her and her children. I am in deep grief.” Princess Diana – Lady Diana Spencer > This is, what the world said
