Kensington Palace, the royal home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their months old son Prince George, was transformed into an enchanted winter wonderland on Tuesday (November 26) as part of a charity benefit attended by celebrities including Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi.
Prince William, a patron of the Centrepoint charity since 2009, met youths supported by the organisation -- which is dedicated to helping youth homelessness -- after earlier hosting Swift and Bon Jovi at a reception before a dinner and musical performances.
Arriving on the blue carpet without Kate the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke earlier talked with American superstar singers Swift and Bon Jovi, the former having flown straight after picking up four awards at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (November 24).
The seven-time Grammy Award winning Swift said that the work being done by Centrepoint was important to support.
"I think that that is an amazing thing to focus on and draw attention to," she said
"I've always really respected Prince William and I think that just getting to be a part of tonight - there are some amazing musicians playing too, musicians I really admire. So all in all, getting the invitation, I knew it was going to be a lot of travel. I kind of walked right off stage after an acceptance speech at the AMAs and got right on a plane. But it was worth it," she said.
Estimates for the amount of young people that experience homelessness in the UK annually are up to 80,000, according to Centrepoint.
23-year-old singer Swift said that rumours she was looking at property in London were true, but refused to confirm whether or not she would be moving to the British capital.
"I'm here a lot, so any place that I go a lot I've checked out real estate, but I wouldn't get a place unless I found the perfect place, but I definitely love it here so I've always thought about what it would be like to maybe be here more," she said.
Prince William also met with other supporters of the charity, as well as some of the youths the charity has helped, with whom he had his photograph taken.
