The Duke of Cambridge has pledged to tackle ullying in schools using a charity that was established in his late mother's name.
This Monday, Prince William, 33, will join others at a special training day in a North London School which will highlight the problem of cyber-bullying and LGBT bullying in Britain's schools.
The non-profit Diana Award organisation have specialist staff who visit schools and brief parents and teachers on practical tips to prevent bullying.
The Diana Award is an award-winning charity that was founded as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better.
Since 1999, the Diana Award has recognised over 44,000 young people who have made a positive difference to their community.
A Kensington Palace spokesman told People magazine that William is especially interested in the group’s Ambassador program.
"He visited Diana Award Ambassadors in South Shields in 2013.
“He hopes it will help de-stigmatise bullying issues in schools.
“He particularly likes the idea of a peer-led support network to prevent any child or young person suffering in silence.
“That’s what he’s keen to see in action on Monday," his spokesman said.
The Duke is expected to fully interact in the workshops.
