Prince Harry ‘moved’ by Grenfell Tower volunteers

ICONINSIDER — Prince Harry has been “moved” by the generosity of the public following the Grenfell Tower disaster last month.
The 32-year-old royal made a private visit to British Red Cross volunteers who have been tirelessly sorting the donations made to the victims affected by the horrifying blaze which tore through the 24-storey apartment building on June 14 and killed at least 80 people.
During his visit, Harry reportedly spent almost an hour chatting to workers who are based at a Royal Mail site in Greenford, north-west London, as well as staff from Royal Mail who have facilitated the operation with the charity.
A Kensington Palace spokeswoman said of his visit: “Prince Harry wanted to visit the volunteers who have given many hours of their time to help sort through the huge number of donations made to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.
“His Royal Highness was moved to hear how generous the public and businesses have been in donating all kinds of items to those affected; he thanked the teams from the British Red Cross and the Royal Mail who have worked tirelessly to sort through the donations.”
Prince Harry’s visit to the volunteers comes after his father, Prince Charles, made a similar visit to a relief centre in White City at the end of last month, where he met with the “fantastic” volunteers who had been offering their services to those who survived the horrific fire.
According to reports at the time, Charles, 68, repeatedly thanked volunteers outside Westway Sports Centre for their “fantastic” and “amazing” work in the wake of the tragedy.
In addition to meeting with volunteers, the royal also visited local residents and community representatives whilst at the shelter, as well as talking to some of those who managed to survive the blaze.
Charles’ visit came after he previously made a donation of an unspecified amount to the relief effort, as part of his role as the president of the British Red Cross.
