William gets Diana's old role

PRINCE William has taken up a role formerly carried out by his mum Diana.
Wills, 24, became president of the Royal Marsden Hospital, which specialises in fighting cancer. Di held the job from 1989 until her death in 1997.
Wills did work experience at the hospital, based in London and Surrey, in 2005.
He said: “The Royal Marsden does an extraordinary job in treating thousands of cancer patients every year. I am delighted and honoured to become president.”
Wills is also patron of homeless charity Centrepoint — another job Di previously held.
