The 33-year-old took part in a bullying prevention workshop at Hammersmith Academy in London as part of his efforts to highlight the Diana Award, which was set up in his mother's name and is given to young adults who are working to change society for the better. One of the activities at the anti-bullying workshop was called "high-five," and involved participants' naming five people who support them no matter what struggles they're facing in life.

When it came time for Will to reveal his five biggest supporters, here's who he chose: "Catherine, Harry, Father, Grandmother, and Grandfather." Oh, and one more little guy: his cocker spaniel Lupo. Here he is filling out his hand:

Bullying is a topic that Will feels passionately about, and the fact that he would dedicate his time to this important cause and spend an afternoon chatting with young people who have been hurt by bullying speaks volumes about his commitment to using the power and platform he has to do good work.

The royal family is often criticized for having access to incredible wealth without working "real" day jobs. But Will, Kate, and Harry aren't sitting idly by and collecting taxpayers' money to live their lavish lifestyle. The trio created a charity organization called The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, through which they focus on areas that include helping children and young adults, supporting current and former members of the armed forces, and conservation efforts.

Will's appearance at this event tells young people that, even if they struggle to come up with five of their own supporters, one of the most influential people in the country is on their side.

As for Will's own personal picks, it's evident that he values family most and that they have each other's backs no matter what.
