Prince William And Kate Middleton Meet Survivors Of Terror Attacks, Grenfell Tower At Charity Launch

Prince William and Kate Middleton attended the launch of the National Emergencies Trust in Central London Thursday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed down to St Martin-in-the-Fields Church to meet survivors of the Grenfell Tower disaster and the London and Manchester terror attacks, among other tragedies.

It was originally a solo engagement for William but Kate joined at the last minute.

The charity has come about as a result of 2017’s Manchester bombing and Grenfell disaster.

William said in a speech, according to the Daily Mail: “Just now and on previous occasions, it has been humbling to speak to survivors of the London Bridge and Manchester attacks, the Cumbria floods, the Grenfell Tower fire and other disasters here in the U.K.

“Their stories are as heartbreaking as they are inspiring. Their resilience and strength are deeply humbling.”
