Prince William mentioned Catherine, Princess of Wales when he visited a group of children in west London

Prince William is set to make a special appearance at the Diana Legacy award tonight (March 14) and his brother Prince Harry is due to make a virtual appearance by joining a video call with the winners. Earlier today, he visited the WEST centre in Shepherd’s Bush, west London. The words WEST stands for Where Everyone Sticks Together, and the name was chosen by the children who use the facility, which doesn’t officially open until April.

Whilst he was at the centre, Prince William not only played basketball but also played pool with the children. He also decorated biscuits during the visit, and during this activity, he paid tribute to his wife, Catherine, Princess of Wales, by saying, “My wife is the arty one.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently broken their silence on the photo editing scandal, and denied that insiders in their camp have been briefing them on how they would have handled the situation. When a story appeared in Page Six's gossip column, quoting "sources close to Meghan Markle and Price Harry," saying: "This isn't a mistke that Meghan would ever make... she has a keen eye and freakish attention to detail," a spokesman from the couple's Archewell Foundation told Newsweek: "With respect to Page Six, that did not come from us."
