Prince William wants to stop bullying, and he's enlisting youth for his mission.

The 33-year old prince and father of two attended an anti-bullying workshop at Bournville College in Birmingham, England on Monday, where he spoke with students from Quarry Bank Primary School. During the event, which was organized by the Diana Award — a charity that honours the legacy of William's late mother, participants were asked to write what defines them, the Duke of Cambridge wrote the words, "I am a prince."

The attendees were surprised at William's response, but in a good way. "I love the fact that in a way he did challenge us, because no one else in the room could say that. We all think, 'Aren't you lucky?' But that comes with responsibility and a load of other things he's had to process and journey through. There are challenges to that," Diana Award ambassador Carrie Grant told People Magazine.

An online survey conducted by the Diana Award recently discovered that 76 per cent of youth feel like they don't fit in at school, due to their ethnicity or appearance.

Prince William has long been a crusader for anti-bullying; earlier this year, he also became the first member of the royal family to speak out against homophobia.
