Kate Middleton steps out with Prince William and Prince Harry

Prince William made it pretty clear that he loves being part of a close-knit family during an official school visit yesterday.

The 33-year-old stopped by Hammersmith Academy alongside staff from the Diana Award – a charity named after his late mother - to take part in a session with pupils about how to cope and deal with bullying.

Wills and the students were asked to write down the name of the people they would turn to for help if they were being picked on.

There are no prizes for guessing that Kate Middleton featured on the handsome royal’s list.

Wills often gushes about his 33-year-old wife and mother of his adorable children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

His younger brother Prince Harry – who got us swooning with his unbuttoned shirt during his cameo in a Rugby World Cup promo debuted at the event’s opening ceremony last week – made the cut too.

Wills also named his Prince Charles, The Queen and grandfather Prince Phillip.

Although those taking part in the exercise were only asked for five names, cheeky Wills just couldn’t resist scribbling down a sixth – his beloved pet spaniel Lupo.

Aw that really does prove that dogs are a man's best friend.

During his time at the educational institution in the capital, Prince William also took the opportunity to condemn homophobia, explaining how he’d comfort the victim and stand up to the attacker.

‘I would try to confront, to tackle the person. I usually find myself right in the middle of problems so that's pretty much where I'd be,' he said.

A Kensington Palace spokesperson added: ‘He hopes it will help de-stigmatise bullying issues in schools.

‘He particularly likes the idea of a peer-led support network to prevent any child or young person suffering in silence.’
