In fact, the breakup went so under-the-radar that the Marvel actor actually filed for divorce from Sheletta Chapital in late 2017, and the divorce was finalized last year, all of which is just now being reported.

Prince William arrived at Centrepoint's 50th Anniversary Gala on Wednesday night looking smart in a green velvet suit jacket and bow tie - and greeted singer Rita Ora with a kiss.

Dame Helen Mirren says meeting the Queen was a 'lesson in embarrassment'

  Dame Helen Mirren says meeting the Queen was a 'lesson in embarrassment' According to Dame Helen Mirren, she was given a "lesson in embarrassment" during a meeting with Queen Elizabeth. The 74-year-old actress - who starred as the British monarch in 2006's 'The Queen' - has admitted she completely forgot to follow royal protocol when she was invited to have tea with the Queen. She recalled: "She invited me for tea. I thought it was going to be in a room with 200 other people, which it often is. I've met her once before and it was in a room with 200 other people. "So I said, 'Oh well I can manage that.

Once inside he looked delighted to meet Rita and also pop band Duran Duran - who sang at the event. 

The duke went on to meet with young people who have supported Centrepoint, before delivering a speech. 

Celebrations started this morning when Prince William helped the youth homelessness charity open its latest venture - a new residential building that offers young apprentices somewhere affordable to live.  

Wearing a maroon fleece over a denim blue shirt with his favoured navy blue chinos and brown suede boots this morning, the casually-attired prince was on relaxed form as he toured the charity's new seven-bedroom property, Apprentice House, in South London.

The building, which will be shared by young people on apprenticeship schemes, was officially opened by the prince, with the royal taking time to meet those who will live at the facility. 

Centrepoint first began in the basement of St Anne's Church in London in 1969 and has since become one of the UK's leading youth homelessness charities, helping over 9,000 homeless young people a year. 

As part of a wider programme developing housing solutions in London and Manchester to support young people moving on from supported accommodation and into work, the charity transformed the South London building.

After chatting with the youngsters in private, William said: 'You guys are the creme de la creme of what Centrepoint can achieve.'

Speaking to a number of employers who have taken on the apprentices, William added: 'It is fantastic that employers like you are able to help these young people seize the chance for independent living.

'They are punching into the ether of society. Hostels are one thing but now they have somewhere to live and somewhere to work.'

Asked by one of the young people if he enjoyed his recent visit to Pakistan, William joked: 'Apart from the near death experience on the plane, it was amazing.' 

The Prince was referring to how his official RAF Voyager plane was forced to turn back after two aborted landings into Islamabad during a fierce storm which saw the aircraft hit by terrible turbulence.

Antonio Sibson, 20, from Leeds, said: 'It means the world to me having a place. The longest I've stayed is Centrepoint.'

Antonio, who has got a job with two other residence at Arros QD in Fitzrovia said: 'It's great to have a wonderful house and a wonderful job. I can find a career and it's given me hope for the future.'

Royal Ross 21, Folkestone, added: 'I grew up in care but this independent living programme has given me real hope for the next stage in my life.' 

It's already been a busy week for the heir to the throne. 

Yesterday, the Duke of Cambridge has asked whether social media platforms are doing enough to prevent suicide, after meeting the father of a teenager who killed herself having viewed graphic content on Instagram.

William and the Duchess of Cambridge met Ian Russell, father of Molly Russell, who took her own life in November 2017 aged 14.

Mr Russell has said he believes Instagram was partly responsible for her death.

Visiting the Troubadour White City Theatre in west London, William and Kate offered Mr Russell their condolences, and William asked him: 'Do you think companies like Instagram are doing enough?'

On a visit to crisis text charity Shout the prince added: 'Catherine and I, and I know I speak for Harry and Megan as well, couldn't be more proud of what Shout has accomplished.' 

Speaking after the meeting, Mr Russell said: 'My thoughts on Instagram are, we're grateful that they're doing something but I think they're only really inching along the road, and they need to do a lot more.'

Mr Russell also disclosed that the duke had been in touch with the family earlier this year to offer his support, and added: 'Support from all ends helps, support from the royal family, perhaps, particularly helps.'

The duke and duchess were attending an event with the charity Shout, celebrating its volunteers who use a text service to assist people in crisis.

Since its launch in 2018, 1,500 volunteers have had 145,000 text conversations with people in crisis, exchanging a total of six million messages.

Since its founding, 75% of people who have contacted Shout have been under 25, and the most common issues raised are suicide, depression, relationships, anxiety, isolation and self-harm.

Mr Russell was full of praise for the charity, and hoped it would help people in crisis to communicate.

He said: 'This is one of the most positive crisis services that I have come across.

'Since Molly's death we've been searching for really solid, easy solutions. This is one of the foremost and it's because it's text based.'

In May, William and Kate joined the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in launching an appeal for volunteers for the text service. By the following weekend, 13,000 people had registered their interest.

Addressing gathered volunteers yesterday, William paid tribute to their hard work and dedication.

He said: 'Catherine and I heard outside about how many of you are waking up at 3am to answer the peak demand.

'The fact we've had to launch Shout shows just how in need the mental health sector is at the minute. We still have an enormous challenge ahead of us.'

In September, Kensington Palace unveiled a powerful video to mark World Suicide Prevention Day - featuring Prince William's national text crisis service Shout.

The video, posted to the Kensington Palace Instagram account, captures men and woman as they read out heart-wrenching messages like those sent to the service by people in need.
