The Royal Family have been out in force this week to show there support for communities ravaged by recent rioting in the UK. Today, Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Birmingham.
The Royal couple arrived at Winson Green in Birmingham this morning and met with local residents and small business owners affected by the recent criminal behaviour. William and Kate also had a private meeting with the families of three men, Haroon Jahan, Shazad Ali and Abdul Musavir who were tragically killed by thugs who drove a vehicle at them in one incident. The three young men were simply protecting the property of their friends, family and neighbours from looting rioters, their funeral service took place yesterday and more than 20,000 people gathered to pay their respects.
Earlier in the week Prince Charles and Camilla spent a day touring riot spots in London and Prince Harry visited Salford near Manchester. The Royal Family like the majority of people in the United Kingdom were shocked and deeply concerned to witness the riots unfold on television and through their charities they are trying to do what they can to help but they also felt the need to get out and about to meet the actual victims. This sincere gesture seemed to be genuinely appreciated by those they met.
