Prince William and Novak Djokovic Centrepoint AwardIts turning out to be a royal blog this week as just 2 days after posting about the royal baby news I found myself stood right next to HRH Prince William!! This happened just before world number 1 tennis player Novak Djokovic was presented with a special Centrepoint award by the charity's patron, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, at the Winter Whites Gala in London's Royal Albert Hall. Prince William has been Centrepoint's patron since 2005, continuing his late mother Princess Diana's work. Proceeds from the gala night have been donated to Centrepoint to further its work in supporting homeless 16-25 year-olds in the UK. The Winter Whites Gala saw the Royal Albert Hall, which was hosting the Statoil Masters Tennis, transformed into an enchanted Winter Wonderland. Tennis greats John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg and Boris Becker all attended and I managed to sneak some photographs! See more on my facebook page.
