Cambridges and Harry Remember Westminster Attack Victims During Service of Hope
At Westminster Abbey on Wednesday morning, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry joined victims, their families and first responders that were caught up in the Westminster terror attack on March 22.
Upon their arrival to the Abbey, Prince William – who was attending the service in his role as patron of the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund, laid a wreath at the Innocent Victims Memorial. He later read the Parable of the Good Samaritan during the service.
The royal trio met with first responders who were first on the scene after the service during a reception, along with some of the victims and family members. American Melissa Payne Cochran, who along with her fatally injured husband Kurt were visiting London to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, said the royals were “very gracious” and offered her their condolences.
Four innocent people were killed in the attack, and fifty people injured.Filed under The United Kingdom
