Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry joined the movement on assistance to the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire. The royals have also donated to an emergency fund to support those affected by Thursday’s tragedy in West London.
The royals immediately responded to an appeal by the Evening Standard for their Dispossessed Fund and made the donation. The Fund provides urgent assistance to families who suffer the consequences of the devastating fire at the Grenfell Tower. Hundreds of its residents are homeless now and need any kind of help.
William and Kate hope their contribution would encourage others to give generously to the cause, Evening Standard reported.
On Friday, London united in the one powerful movement – people are organising themselves through social media and funds to provide any kind of possible assistance to the survivors. William, Kate and Harry join the thousands of kindhearted neighbours, strangers and community leaders in their sincere desire to help people in need.
