“Not that other members of the family are not friendly or anything like that but this is sort of a pare down approach compared to the more stiff, formal approach of courtiers and staff.”

Sean added: “She knows how to manage her staff and, more importantly, they like her, which is a brilliant and positive result.”

Meanwhile, Seyi Obakin OBE, the CEO of Centrepoint, said it has been wonderful collaborating with William for a decade now.

While speaking to The Mirror, he said: “I think it says something about an incredible testament to his mother’s legacy that he wanted to be patron of Centrepoint and remain involved in finding a way through homelessness.

“He has a voice that most of us will never have, I think it is to his immense credit that he’s happy to use that for the benefit of homeless people.”

He added: “I for one am grateful that he doe that.”
