He also had two other engagements today and the Queen had a meeting with Czech President.

I read it was a man whose two children were among the missing that was yelling, trying to get someone to listen to him and find some answers.

It was good to see Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and the Queen at the Towers. It shows honesty and empathy.

I could see the Queen having her second grandson as accompanying her on events.

Per this article from Robert Hardman, the guy would not give his name but admitted the children on the poster were not his

I imagine that William realizes just how extremely fortunate he is with doing engagements with his grandmother. He started off quite young while at Eton going across the river to Windsor Castle for tea and "king" lessons from his grandmother and bit by bit, he's been learning from her ever since.

Because of the Queen's longevity of reign, William doesn't only learn the ins and outs of being a monarch but also has "hands on" lessons by being there and doing it with his monarch. I think this is one of the biggest advantages that William has in building his future role as king.

There is more to it than William being the Queen's "plus one". He's the future "king in training".

I agree it was a good choice to send the Queen and William. Charles, the future king, Camilla and Catherine were busy as well today and it's very nice to see that the "team" is hard at work.
We can expect more visits from the senior royals anytime soon ...
As to who accompanies the Queen, I am guessing that will depend on the engagement. This year is really where William, Catherine and Harry are getting their feet wet in the work of the "Firm", putting into practice what they have seen and learnt throughout their lives. Unfortunately, it seems to be a baptism by fire for the three of them in that there have been so many disasters in such a short time.

I was interested watching HM when a woman began screaming out/crying and watched her never lose focus. She knew there was nothing she could do and that there were plenty of trained people there who could. William, on the other hand, found himself almost making excuses and promising to come back as he was leaving. The man calling about children was not related to the children and once again, HM could do nothing herself and neither could William, but he felt the need to apologise.

That is going to be one of the hardest lessons for them to learn. Focus on the reason you are there. The situation at this stage is too new, too raw, for them to go off script. And if they try to get engaged in everything they will soon find themselves suffering from compassion fatigue. Worn out and unable to do what they alone can do.

They cannot allow themselves to be drawn into the details, stepping on the toes of volunteers and/or professionals, let alone local and national politicians. Hard as it may be to grasp, that is "politics". And just as the last three terrorist attacks are political, the Grenfell Tower fire has already become very, very "political.

HM, and the senior members of the BRF know this. William, Catherine and Harry are going to have to learn this the hard way.

I think it's great that as the DoE winds down and the Queen is slowing down that William start making appearances with her (and Harry should too)...they are going to be high profile from now on...and part of the main working group (along with their wives).

Charles stays pretty busy doing his own appearances I think.

William make more sense than Harry because he can be learning from the Queen while doing it.

Yes for sure William...but it's nice to see the Queen with Harry also..and he will be a prominent figure for some years yet.

Actually, I think that as time passes, Harry will become more of a right hand man and play a huge part in the workings of the Firm and will be up front and very involved in just about everything just as Charles as King and William as the heir apparent will be. I do expect Harry to be seen with the Queen in the future once the DoE does step down completely as much as we'll see William and Kate.

All three of the Three Musketeers are going to be ramping up their public roles as senior royals and as close as they work together now, I don't see that changing at all in the future.
