He was only spotted when a passing Londoner spotted a “celebrity” – and took a closer look.

Retired Met Police Superintendent Matthew Gardner shared photos of William on his Linkedin account.

He said: “My brother-in-law was in London today and saw a celebrity so he snapped a photo from afar.

“The celebrity saw the ‘covert surveillance’ efforts and crossed the street to investigate further.

“What an honor to have a private moment with our future king who was humble and quietly working in the background to help those most in need.

“These ‘silent gestures’ are often not recognised.

“The culmination of this unique occasion was when Prince William asked my brother-in-law if he would like to buy the Big Issue, to which he replied, ‘I have no spare change.’

“By this time, William was producing a mobile card machine… you can’t teach that!

“Priceless, or should I say ‘princely’.”
