Aún pasará mucho tiempo antes de que a los duques de Cambridge les toque lidiar en su papel de padres a la revolución hormonal que supone la adolescencia y que suele llegar acompañada de los primeros enamoramientos.
Sin embargo, ellos son muy conscientes de que ese momento llegará algún día y que, en el caso de sus tres hijos, cualquier detalle de sus vidas sentimentales se analizará y comentará hasta la saciedad.
Este miércoles, durante una visita al centro Albert Kennedy Trust, una organización benéfica de Londres que trata de ayudar a jóvenes del colectivo LGBTQ+ que han perdido su hogar por distintos motivos, el príncipe William se encontró con una inesperada pregunta al respecto, pero centrada en cuál sería su reacción si George, Charlotte o Louis eligieran en un futuro a una pareja de su mismo sexo.

Ahead of the annual #prideinlondon parade and in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, The Duke of Cambridge visited Albert Kennedy Trust (akt) to learn about the issue of LGBTQ+ youth homelessness, and the positive change that akt are enacting through their unique prevention and early action approach. The Duke met people supported by akt, and spoke to staff about the services they provide including the ‘Purple Door’ safe house, LGBTQ+ ‘host’ (or carer) services, in-person and online mentoring programmes and a range of youth engagement activities. Among the people The Duke met was Faz, an akt Young Ambassador and trans Muslim man. Faz lost his parents when he was younger and was living with extended family, but had to leave home after they reacted badly to him coming out as trans. akt helped support Faz, and he was one of the first people to move into Purple Door. Swipe to see Faz speak about how akt helped him, and see more from The Duke’s visit. Almost one quarter of the 150,000 young people facing or experiencing homelessness identify as LGBTQ+, and 77 per cent of those cite rejection or abuse from their families as what has led them to being so. akt has provided over 250,000 nights off the street and supported over 50,000 LGBTQ+ young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Today The Duke officially opened akt’s new services centre in Hoxton, which will host drop-in sessions for young people and grow its youth engagement offering. The Stonewall uprising took place in New York on June 28, 1969, and is seen as the moment that sparked the modern LGBTQ+ movement around the world. Pride marches around the world will be recognising the anniversary, including Pride in London, where akt staff and supporters will be marching. @aktcharity #LGBTQ #Pride
