Princes Will and Harry know charity starts at home and have shown it by helping out BBC’s DIY SOS team to transform a derelict street in Manchester for veterans.

It seems like something their mother Princess Diana would have done – she was always willing to lend a hand to someone in need whether they lived in a street nearby or on the other side of the world.

BBC reports empty properties on Canada Street in Newton Heath will be transformed into liveable homes for ex-service personnel.

Hundreds and volunteers and builders were joined by the two Royal brothers to renovate eight buildings and revamp 62 house facades.

It’s a big job but Prince Harry and Prince William couldn’t seem happier to help – Prince William painted a kitchen, whilst Prince Harry did some landscaping in the yard whilst they both wore hard hats with their names on the front.

Resident John Wilkinson said of the princes, “They were gentlemen. They were flirting with Margaret more than anyone else. She was well chuffed with Harry. I think she is going to leave me”!

Wilkinson has lived in Canada Street for 28 years and the project has saved his home.

“Hopefully this is the catalyst across the country to do something for all our soldiers and families. There is no reason for our soldiers to be living on the streets, they can come and form a nice community here”, he said.

Take a look at the photos below and tell us, do you see Princess Di in these boys?

  1. Aaaah yes I do see Diana in these boys and thank heavens for that. Lovely fellas. Wills married for love and looks like he will make a better job at marriage than his dopey father (although I am pleased he seems happy now). Diana would be so proud of her boys.

  2. Charles has done a wonderful job in difficult circumstances. The boys obviously love him and they have a wonderful relationship with their father. He is affectionate with them and considering his upbringing I think he is amazing with them. He has had a lifetime if services and dones amazing work with disadvantaged youth. Maybe his boys have a lot if him in them too.

  3. I always seem to see these two amazing young men with a slight ghosting of Diana. I think how proud she would/should be of them.

  4. YES, in the way their faces express how excited, or how much they care about people, In every day situations. I so love Diana for raising her 2 Sons with the principals, Diana cared about most. Her Sons are a credit to Diana, The people’s Princes. Their Mum will always be alive, whilst William, and Harry, strive for others, in their lives.

  5. Yes so like Diana.It was Diana that showed the boys the other side of life, and they get stuck in to help people out.Two down to earth young men.Diana will be looking down on them as such a proud mum.
