People reports that William picked up a paint roller to work on a youth boxing club currently being built.

“It’s been one of the worst disasters in modern time in this country,” he told “DIYSOS” host Nick Knowles on the site. “Everyone’s been shocked by how brutal, how horrendous it all was. Everyone’s playing catch-up, trying to work out how do you deal with a truly horrendous situation.”

“But for the community, they’re reliving it all the time so… progress needs to happen,” William added. “The community coming together is the first, important part of fixing that. There’s still lots to do.”

The 36-year-old, along with wife Kate Middleton, brother Prince Harry and sister-in-law Meghan Markle have all contributed to charitable efforts supporting the victims of the Grenfell tragedy.

William and Harry both appeared on “DIYSOS” three years ago, helping to renovate homes for armed forces veterans in Manchester.

“I thought after Manchester you wouldn’t ask me back,” William joked, with Knowles responding, “There was quite a lot of comment on social media about your painting skills.”

The “DIYSOS” episode featuring William is set to air on BBC One in the U.K. on Wednesday night.
