Prince William, heir to the throne of the United Kingdom, took part in a training session involving over 50 young people from across London, at the Cathnor Road school, which focussed on cyber-bullying and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) bullying. According to Get West London.
During his visit, the Duke also saw how Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are taught to recognise signs of bullying and how they can encourage victims to seek help and speak out about their concerns.
Joining a session on LGBT issues, the students were asked how they would react to homophobic bullying. The Duke of Cambridge mentioned that he would confront the bullies and comfort the victims.
The Diana Award was set up in memory of The Duke of Cambridge’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, and her belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. It is committed to empowering thousands of young people to tackle social issues that affect other young people using a well-tested peer-led approach.
