Prince William invests £3 million to house homeless people


In the UK, more than 300,000 are homeless, half of whom are minors, according to figures from the Royal Foundation. Faced with this scourge, Prince William announced on Sunday that he would finance a social housing project in his Duchy of Cornwall, to the tune of 3 million pounds sterling (around 3.5 million euros).

This project, called Homewards, aims to build 24 homes in Nansledan, Cornwall, on nearly 130,000 hectares of land which the Prince of Wales inherited as the eldest son of King Charles III.

Construction is expected to begin in September 2024 and the first houses should be completed in fall 2025.

“Homewards aims to give people across the UK hope that homelessness can be avoided by showing them the progress we can make when we work together” between the public, private and voluntary sectors, Prince William said .

“A drop of water in the ocean”

The anti-monarchy movement Republic, for its part, denounces a “drop in the ocean compared to what is necessary”. “William will profit more from these homes, while over the next decade the country will spend at least £3.4 billion on the royal family,” said Graham Smith, head of Republic.

The Homewards program is rolling out across six different cities in the UK.
