Prince William honoured with special cake

Britain's Prince William was honoured with a special cake at a charity dinner last night (17.10.12).
The Duke of Cambridge attended an event in London where he paid tribute to the 'inspiring' work of a crime-prevention charity, but before the dinner he was shown a cake which recreated his drive down The Mall with the Duchess of Cambridge - who was known as Kate Middleton prior to the pair's nuptials - in his father's Aston Martin after their wedding.
William attended the event at London's Savoy Hotel in aid of the St Giles Trust - which seeks to prevent offenders continuing their involvement in crime by helping people in trouble with the law resettle and break the cycle of offending - and said he is very impressed with the work they do.
The prince - who is patron of the Trust's 50th anniversary - said: 'This charity truly inspires me. It has touched the lives of a quarter of a million people over the past five decades.
'These are people from the margins of society who, thanks to this charity, were able to recover from an appalling start and go on to live successful, productive and positive lives.
'What started as a small soup kitchen for the homeless and destitute has become one of the leading charities in this country helping ex-offenders to reform, resettle, and - critically - to break out of the costly and destructive cycle of reoffending.'
He also said people working for the Trust are 'beyond praise', and could understand what people are going through.
