The billions of people around the world watching and following with interest the fairytale-like wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton and then the birth of the future King George will have noted that Prince William is very much losing his hair as a result of 'Male Pattern Baldness' (MPB) and at a relatively young age too.
Every year in the UK 80,000 young people experience homelessness, a fact known to too few but one that should trouble all of us. Tonight members of the public in eight cities will make their feelings known by giving up their beds and spending a night on the street in the largest national Sleep Out of its kind.
The royals have turned a corner because the youngsters have been allowed to flourish. William in particular has shown humility, humour and a strong sense of direction. He has more than a touch of his mother about him, although is probably stronger in many senses. A lot of the important details people have remembered about the royals over the past few years have been down to him, and Wills has come a long way from his slightly nervous engagement interview with his friend and broadcaster Tom Bradby.
