THE MOMENT a Big Issue customer told Prince William ‘I don’t have spare change’ was branded as ‘priceless’.
Wearing a red salesman’s waistcoat and hat, the Duke of Cambridge was handing out copies of the magazine on Rochester Row, Westminster.
And the royal didn’t pass up his opportunity to make a sale.
Retired Met Police Superintendent Matthew Gardner shared photos of William on his Linkedin account.
He revealed the sweet moment
He said: “Prince William asked my brother-in-law if he wanted to buy the Big Issue, to which he replied ‘I don’t have any change’.
“By this time, William was producing a mobile card machine… you can’t teach that!
“Priceless, or should I say ‘princely’.”
Mr Gardner said: “My brother-in-law was in London today and saw a celebrity so he snapped a photo from a distance.
“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 recognized.”
