Like mother, like son
A pair of future, one and only, King stories have risen in the media today; maybe no surprise given that it was the solstice at 17.47GMT, Monday.
The first concerns his mother, Princess Di, and the sale of some (more) of her personal letters. In a seasonal report, regarding one of her musings written to personal beautician, Jane Filderman, she admitted to opening her Christmas presents early and feared that Prince William had "acquired her habit" - given the discovery of discarded wrapping paper "scattered around the home".

The next directly concerns the Prince himself as he shares in another endearing family trait - charity. We note that Wills spent an entire night last week bedding down in the manner of a homeless person before rising at 6 to "tour" other street-sleeper haunts close to his Blackfriars Bridge dossing-spot. Afterwards the entourage went to Centrepoint centre where our hero "cooked breakfast" for a group of unfortunates before chatting with them and staff. (here)
