Prince William returns to spotlight after missing funeral

When Prince William returned to the spotlight on Tuesday for a solo appearance in Slough, he elicited laughter from onlookers.

The royal spent time at Aik Saath, which in Hindi, Punjabi, and Urdu means “Together As One.” The project was started in response to gang violence between young people from Asian backgrounds in Slough in the 1990s.

William will be informed about the Global Grub program run by Aik Saath in addition to meeting volunteers. During the summer, young people are taught how to prepare homemade, nutritious meals from all over the world in a kitchen that was converted as part of the project from a space in a nearby shopping mall.

It was created to maintain youths’ positive engagement outside of school and guarantee their access to consistent, hot food.

William was brought to a kitchen shortly after he arrived to watch some young people prepare chicken teriyaki. He made a joke, “At 10, 11 in the morning?!” and the young chefs laughed. The charming royal then put on his own apron and started working on the meal’s preparation.

The Prince also admitted openly to having a knack for cooking. Kevin Muhammad, a chef and educator, overheard him saying: “I make a good steak. I need to improve the texture or dryness of my sauces.”

While at the center, William also had a meeting with young people from Slough Young Carers. When several Aik Saath volunteers realized they were all young carers and wanted to use their experiences to help others, they founded this organization in 2014.

The main objective of SYC is to increase each young carer’s resilience and sense of wellbeing. To make sure young carers are recognized and receive the aid and support they require, they frequently conduct awareness sessions in schools and for other professionals.

Just a few days prior to William’s outing, he and Princess Catherine visited Liverpool for their first public appearance together this year.

Additionally, it was the first time the royal couple had been spotted since the publication of Prince Harry’s explosive memoir, Spare.

When asked if he had read Harry’s book, William opted to remain silent. They had been greeted warmly by throngs of people and appeared to be in good spirits.

William has had a challenging month because his godfather King Constantine tragically passed away at the age of 82.

Unexpectedly, neither William nor his father, King Charles, were present at his funeral on Monday in Athens.

The former monarch was honored by a large gathering of European royals. Princess Anne, who attended with her husband Sir Timothy Laurence, and Lady Gabriella, the Prince of Wales’ representative and daughter of Prince Michael of Kent, both served as ambassadors for the British institution.
