Prince William meets ‘honourable’ police officers

ICONINSIDER — Prince William has praised the “honourable” family liaison officers who worked with those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
The 35-year-old royal met the officers as he attended the Metropolitan Police’s passing out parade for new police constables in Hendon, Middlesex, and praised them for their work in helping to rebuild the lives of those who lost loved ones or had their homes destroyed when the 24-storey building caught fire in June this year.
Speaking to the liaison officers, William said: “Well done guys, you really do an honourable job. I don’t even know how you begin to deal with that, it’s a really harrowing job you have to do.”
During his visit to Hendon, William – who has four-year-old Prince George and two-year-old Princess Charlotte, as well as expecting his third child with his wife Duchess Catherine – also met with around 182 of the new constables who were celebrating graduating from the Met’s Police Academy in a ceremony watched by family and friends as they marched on the parade square at Hendon Police Complex.
In June this year, shortly after the fire took place, Prince William had accompanied his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, to the site of the devastating blaze which killed an estimated 80 people and injured approximately 70 more.
Prior to the visit, the 91-year-old monarch released a statement in which she praised the “generosity” of the community who helped those affected.
She wrote at the time: “My thoughts and prayers are with those families who have lost loved ones in the Grenfell Tower fire and the many people who are still critically ill in hospital. Prince Philip and I would like to pay tribute to the bravery of firefighters and other emergency services officers who put their own lives at risk to save others. It is also heartening to see the incredible generosity of community volunteers rallying to help those affected by this terrible event.”
