The Duchess of Cambridge will soon be spending a night on the streets of London with Centrepoint’s Sleep Out campaign in order to raise awareness of the mounting homelessness problem in the UK’s capital city.
The Daily Mirror reports that Kate got roped into sleeping on the streets by actress Lisa Maxwell, who works for the campaign. Prince William and Princess Diana have both done it before her, and now Kate is following suit. Maxwell told the Mirror:
“She asked me about sleeping out, so I said: ‘Next time I do it, you’re doing it with me. No excuses, he’s done it.’ She said: ‘You’re on’.”
