Prince William Pays Tribute To Manchester Terror Attack Victims
Ahead of the FA Cup final’s kick-off at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, the Duke of Cambridge led tributes to the victims of Monday night’s terrorist attack at Manchester Arena, which killed 22 and injured scores of others.
Prince William was joined by the Chairman of the Football Association, Greg Clarke, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, and the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Karen Bradley, for a wreath-laying and a minute’s silence before the match between Arsenal and Chelsea began.
“We will never fear coming together to celebrate all that unites us. In memory of the friends and family taken from us in Manchester,” the signed note on William’s wreath read.
The Duke, who is President of the Football Association, sat in the stands for the match, which saw Arsenal defeat Chelsea 2-1 to claim their 13th FA Cup title.Filed under The United Kingdom
