Prince William and Catherine are on a seven-day tour of India and neighbouring Bhutan. On the third day of their South Asian tour, they visited Salaam Baalak Trust to see how it provides support for working children in Delhi.
Later, in a meeting with India’s PM Narenda Modi, Prince William also discussed pressures on the steel industry. The discussion was in connection with the crisis facing the UK’s steel industry, which has been blamed on the “dumping” of Chinese steel.
Other issues that were discussed during the meeting are the strength of the UK-India relationship in areas including defence and security and the UK/India Year of Culture in 2017.
During the royal’s visit to a Delhi-based charity, the duke asked: “What can we do to help?”
To which Sanjoy Roy, the charity’s director, replied: "Spread the word. People think of them as street kids, beggars, thieves but they are just children.
"They deserve an education, future and a life. They have a right to a childhood."
