Following his brother Prince Harry, Prince William is now also entering the world of TV documentaries, but for charitable reasons and not for self-promotion. What is known about his project so far.

Prince William has set himself a big goal: he wants to end homelessness in the UK. Last year he launched Homewards, a five-year program that is fighting street life at six locations with £500,000 in seed capital each.

The program launched in June 2023. Homewards brings together “an unparalleled network of organizations and individuals” by using their expertise to “develop and implement a bespoke plan to prevent homelessness in vulnerable areas,” Kensington Palace said at the time. Prince William’s mission is clear, with the 2023 release stating: “In a modern and progressive society, everyone should have a safe home, be treated with dignity and receive the support they need. With Homewards, I want to make this a reality and give people across the UK hope over the next five years that homelessness can be prevented by working together.”

In order to draw even more media attention to the issue, Prince William has now decided to release a documentary about the first year of work on the project in autumn 2024. The organisation’s homepage reveals about the planned film project: “Prince William will accompany the rollout of Homewards across the country, as well as the journeys of those who are currently experiencing homelessness or who have experienced the problem.”

Prince William is convinced that homelessness can be ended

It is an exclusive two-part ITV documentary series with the current working title “Prince William: We Can End Homelessness”. The documentary will be shown this autumn on the British channels ITV1 and ITVX. TheRoyal Foundation CEO Amanda Berry says of the TV project: “We know that television has the power to influence hearts and minds. Homelessness may be difficult to prevent, but by sharing the experiences of those affected and the stories of those committed to supporting them, we can inspire action. This two-part documentary aims to raise awareness and demonstrate that through collective action, it is possible to end homelessness.”

Prince William’s commitment to fighting homelessness follows in the footsteps of his mother, Princess Diana. The Prince of Wales has long been committed to fighting street life after his mother, Princess Diana, took him to a homeless shelter when he was 11 years old. The issue was a central part of Diana’s work as a royal – and her eldest son has taken on that role, serving as patron of a number of charities working on the issue.

He also wants to continue his mother’s traditional parenting approach. He told The Times that he plans to visit a homeless centre with his children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis in the coming months. “I think if I can fit it in with their school time, they will definitely be exposed to it. On the way to school we talk about what we see. When we were travelling back and forth in London, we regularly saw people sitting outside supermarkets and we talked about it,” said the prince and father of three.
