Earl Spencer told Hello!: “My father always told us how Diana was born on just such a blisteringly hot day, at Sandringham, in July 1961.”

It’s another very happy summer’s day, half a century on.

He then commented on the similarities to the day George was born.

“It’s another very happy summer’s day, half a century on,” he said, linking the two.

Prince George was born on July 22 2013 in St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London, in the height of summer.

“Looking back helps us to see how far we’ve come. But problems are fixed in the present. And despite all the progress, homelessness is still seen by many as some entrenched phenomenon over which we have little power.”

He added: “I hope to bring George, Charlotte, and Louis to see the fantastic organizations doing inspiring work to support those most in need. Just as my mother did for me.”
