Prince William is doing everything he can to be there for his people in their time of need. The second in line to the throne visited Manchester on June 3 to meet with survivors of the terrorist attack on a May 22 Ariana Grande concert and his visit certainly delighted the victims!
Prince William, 34, headed to Manchester today, June 3, to honor the city for its impressive resilience after the horrific terrorist attack that killed 22 people following the Ariana Grande concert that took place at the Manchester Arena on May 22. William paid tribute to the victims by signing a condolence book at Manchester Cathedral, writing the absolutely beautiful message, “Manchester’s strength and togetherness is an example to the world. My thoughts are with all those affected.” How truly inspiring!

William, who is an air ambulance pilot, made a point of meeting personally with the first responders and health care workers who served to help the citizens of Manchester during the horrible attack which claimed the lives of some of Ariana’s young fans and parents who were waiting to pick up their children. Following that visit he moved on to meet with young survivors of the attack and their families at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. William is hardly the first to visit with the brave group, with his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II making a trip over shortly after the attack and Ariana visiting her fans as well.
