Prince William participates in anti-bullying workshop

Prince William wants kids to feel proud and not ashamed for being different.

The British royal participated in an anti-bullying workshop organized by the Diana Award, and worked with anti-bullying ambassadors to combat the issue.

What makes Duke of Cambridge different? During what was presumably an exercise, he wrote on a slip of paper, "I am a prince."

The official Kensington Palace Instagram account posted a photo of Prince William's note, in which he scrawled the sentence in all caps.

The caption read: "Today The Duke of Cambridge took part in anti-bullying workshop, organised by the Diana Award, to encourage young people to be proud of what makes them different. The Diana Award was set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. It is committed to empowering thousands of young people to tackle social issues that affect other young people using a well-tested peer-led approach."

Somehow, we're a little skeptical Prince William experienced a ton of bullying as a child.

Another photo showed Prince William listening to schoolchildren give a presentation. The caption noted that there are more than 16,000 "Anti-Bullying Ambassadors trained by The Diana Award in 3,000 schools across the U.K. and Ireland."
