Great news, royal fans! Prince William is coming to the small screen this fall, and it has everything to do with his homelessness initiative.

Called Prince William: We Can End Homelessness, the two-part ITV documentary will revolve around the Prince of Wales's five-year initiative, Homewards, launched in partnership with The Royal Foundation in June 2023. Per the official website, it aims to "give people across the U.K. hope that homelessness can be prevented by showing them the progress we can make when we collaborate."

The upcoming series will explore the charity's beginnings, highlight the stories of people facing homelessness in the U.K. and feature appearances by several advocates fighting to end homelessness.

The upcoming series is directed by Leo Burley, who said in a statement, "From street homelessness in Newport, to families living in temporary accommodation in Sheffield, and youth homelessness in Aberdeen, the documentary paints a picture of homelessness across the UK today, working with many people who never expected to experience life without a place to call home. Everyone we’ve filmed with has welcomed the spotlight that Prince William and Homewards are placing on the UK’s homelessness crisis.”

Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive Officer of The Royal Foundation, also said, "We know that television has the power to change hearts and minds. Homelessness can seem like it is hard to prevent but by sharing the realities of people’s experiences and those who are coming together to support them, we can inspire action. This two-part documentary will help raise vital awareness and demonstrate that, by working together, it is possible to end homelessness."

A release date hasn't been confirmed just yet, but we do know that it's set to air on Britain's ITV network in the fall.

The prince is following in the footsteps of his late mother, Princess Diana, who also supported multiple homelessness initiatives. In fact, she was a patron of Centrepoint, a charity that works with homeless youth.

In March 2023, the prince opened up about his mother's passion for the cause and her impact. He said in an interview, "My mother introduced me to the cause of homelessness from quite a young age, and I'm really glad she did. I think she would be disappointed that we are still no further on in terms of tackling homelessness and preventing it than when she was interested and involved in it."

Currently, Homewards works with six locations across the U.K., but the goal is to raise awareness, expand nationwide and put an end to homelessness.

Princess Diana would be proud.
