Prince William hit the headlines earlier this month after his spell selling The Big Issue – now it has been revealed the future king has caught up with another vendor just days later.
During a visit to modular homes development Jimmy’s in Cambridge, William, this time with Catherine, posed with our man Eamonn Kelly after spending 45 minutes chatting to the vendor on his sofa on June 23.
Kelly, 52, who sells The Big Issue on Trinity Street in the city, has lived in the pod for two years and was happy to welcome the royal couple into his home as part of William’s continued education on homelessness.
“I always liked William because he reminds me of his mum and he is like her: he’s loyal, he’s down-to-earth and he doesn’t judge you. I told him my mum died five months ago and he told me he knows what that’s like. He shook my hand and told me it doesn’t get any easier,” said Eamonn, who has been selling The Big Issue magazine for 15 years.
“He’s a down-to-earth guy. We spoke about homelessness and he told he’d never seen a place as clean as my pod. I said I try! I told him how I had a crack habit for six years but now I’m clean as a whistle”.
Prince William tried his hand at selling The Big Issue earlier in June alongside London seller Dave Martin.
