Princes William, Harry and Kate Middleton attend Service of Hope for London terror attack victims

Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry stepped out for a somber joint engagement on Wednesday, April 5. The trio attended the Service of Hope held at Westminster Abbey in honor of those affected by last month’s terror attack in London. The royals were joined by the families of those killed in the attack, in addition to victims, witnesses and first responders from the police, fire, paramedics and NHS hospital services.

Upon his arrival to the multi-faith service, the Duke of Cambridge laid a wreath at the Innocent Victims’ Memorial in memory of those who lost their lives in the Westminster Attack, while Kate and Harry solemnly looked on. Four individuals were killed in the horrific attack on March 22, including an American tourist, Kurt Cochran from Utah, who was in London celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary with his wife Melissa. Melissa, who was injured in the attack, also attended the Wednesday morning service.


Following the memorial, during which William delivered a reading — the "Parable of the Good Samaritan" — the British royals met privately with the victims’ families and those injured, along with the first responders. After turning heads in a red Marchesa number the night before, the Duchess opted for a demure ensemble for the outing. Princess Charlotte's mom recycled her Missoni Long Snake Stitch Coat, which she accessorized with a Sylvia Fletcher for Lock & Co. Salsa Fascinator and Her Majesty’s diamond and pearl earrings. One day after the Westminster terror attack, Kate expressed her sympathy for those affected.

A week later, William also paid tribute to one of the victims, PC Keith Palmer. The Duke honored the late police officer during his visit to the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Laying a wreath at the engagement, Prince George’s father included a note that read: "For PC Keith Palmer, and all those who have served our community so valiantly. Your legacy is our way of life. William."
