On January 28, 75 years after Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a memorial service at Westminster, also in honour of Holocaust Memorial Day.

During the service, William read an extract of a letter written by his great-grandmother, Princess Alice of Greece and Denmark, who helped hide Jewish families during the Holocaust in Greece and is recognised as a Righteous Amongst the Nations by Yad Vashem, the national Holocaust memorial of Israel.

William and Kate also met with survivors of the Holocaust, and the prime minister, Boris Johnson, was also present and addressed the congregation at Westminster. Nina Wadia and Rebecca Front also read at the event, and an LGBT+ Choir from London performed.

William and Kate also revealed how they have already told their children about the Holocaust, with Kate saying “we were talking about it earlier today”, before adding that she had explained what the Holocaust was in a way that was appropriate for six-year-old Prince George.
