London - During a session on bullying, Prince William spoke out against homophobia.

According to the Daily Mail, England's future king participated in an event on bullying and cyberbullying with students from Hammersmith Academy in West London.

In one exercise, he was asked how he would react to homophobic bullying. Prince William said that he would confront the abuser after comforting the victim.

"I would try to confront, to tackle the person. I usually find myself right in the middle of problems, so that's pretty much where I'd be," he said during an hour-long training session on LGBT bullying.

Tom, a former student, said: "It was great to have his support. To have somebody of that stature and that high up, speaking up against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia."

"It's something that must be really deeply rooted in his want for justice and for everybody to be equal. It's just amazing to see someone from royalty stand up and say this," he added.
