Prince William to visit London school for LGBT bullying workshop
Prince William will visit a school with staff from the Diana Award, to highlight the problem of LGBT bullying in schools.
The Diana Award, named after the Prince’s late mother, has specialist staff, who will visit the school alongside him.
The aim of the visit is to provide practical tips to prevent anti-LGBT bullying, and cyber bullying.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson commented, saying: “William visited Diana Award Ambassadors in South Shields in 2013. He hopes it will help de-stigmatise bullying issues in schools.
“He particularly likes the idea of a peer-led support network to prevent any child or young person suffering in silence. That’s what he’s keen to see in action on Monday.”
The Diana Award aims to identify and develop young people,a s well as engaging them in social action.
Patrons of the charity include David Cameron, Esther Rantzen, Sinitta and Carrie Grant.
On visiting the North London school on Monday, Prince William is expected to take part in workshops, and engage with students.
The visit also marks a rare occasion when a member of the Royal family comments on an LGBT issue.
