On Monday, Prince William visited the Fire Fighters Charity’s Centre at Harcombe House to mark Emergency Services Day.
During an art therapy session at the centre, the Prince shared an insight into his only daughter, Princess Charlotte. He revealed that Charlotte is obsessed with unicorns.
As he admired artwork by Mr Bill’s children Joshua, Mia and Isla, William spotted a unicorn horn made from colourful balls.
“My daughter [Princess Charlotte] loves unicorns,” he said. “Loves them. Very cool.”
Photos from the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day match back in June, show that Charlotte was proudly toting a sequined unicorn purse throughout the event.
She also proved her love if unicorns once again, on her first day of school at Thomas’s Battersea. As they arrived, mom Kate was pictured carrying Charlotte’s bag which featured a sparkly, sequinned unicorn keyring.
During his visit, William also revealed plans to train as a volunteer counsellor for the text crisis service Shout.
William’s debuted his own crisis texting service in May alongside Kate, Prince Harry and Meghan. Now he is partnering with leading emergency services organizations to help crews and their families.
Chatting to volunteers from the service he said: “I’m aiming to set myself up for it, I really want to do it. Even if I can only do an hour on my laptop. I want to do the training and be able to help.”
Shout volunteers receive 25 hours online training before dealing with members of the public.
If the call is deemed an emergency with a real risk to life, then it is passed onto the relevant emergency service.
To start a conversation with a trained volunteer, the members of the emergency services community can text BLUELIGHT to 85258.
The Prince also talked about his most “daunting incidents” as an air ambulance pilot before he retired in 2017.
“As a team, we travel to some very daunting incidents and we have been though some incredibly tough times together, witnessing some appalling tragedies,” he wrote. “One of the first call outs I made was to a young man who had [died by] suicide; it was an incredibly tough day and had a profound effect on all of us, not least in my determination now to draw attention to this issue.”
