William And Kate Have A Delightful Visit…To Skid Row!

william and kate visit skid row

Kind of hard to believe, but their visit was a huge success!

Last week, we learned that William & Kate had plans to visit downtown Los Angeles' Skid Row, which is the homeless capital with over 4,000 people crammed in a 50-square block area living in dirty tents and cardboard boxes.

We had heard that they were planning on painting and making ceramics with impoverished children at the Inner-City Arts academy…but we were still a bit nervous for them.

Fortunately, everything turned out fine, and William & Kate got along wonderfully with the kids!

While crafting a turtle with some of the kids, William playfully said the following:

"Should we make it a smiley tortoise? A happy one? A crazy tortoise? Should we name it Harry?"

"Have you guys ever seen Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? No? It's a cartoon much cooler than it sounds."

And then here's what William said to Kate when the turtle was finished:

"This is our turtle. We've named him William!"

And here's what William had to say before they left for the day:

"I'm having fun. I could stay here all day. This is brilliant."

We are SO happy that their Skid Row visit went so well! Sounds like it was definitely a meaningful experience for William, Kate, and all of those kids!
