Kate Middleton and Prince William paid tribute to the victims of the 2017 bombing. Recall, after the concert of Ariana Grande, a suicide bomber detonated a bomb in the lobby of Manchester Arena at a time when the audience was leaving the hall.22 people lost their lives, including eight-year-old Safi Rose Rousseau. 59 people were injured. Ariana Grande was completely devastated by the loss and briefly withdrew from the scene. Later she spoke publicly about the problems with depression that arose as a result of the tragic event.
The singer paid millions of dollars to help the families of the victims, and every year she organizes charity concerts in memory of the victims.
Kate Middleton and Prince Harry gave a speech at the rally, joining the families of the victims.’I remember well the shock and sadness on the faces of those I met when I visited Manchester in the days after the crime. Five years later, I know that the pain and trauma of many have not disappeared. As someone who lives with their grief, I know that those who have lost loved ones will never forget them. That’s why monuments like this’ Glade of Light ‘are very important, ‘ said Prince William, who also paid tribute to his mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997. Oasis’ song ‘Don’t look back in anger ‘ describes Manchester’s response to crime.
Kate could barely contain her emotions during her husband’s speech and she wore the earrings in the shape of bees and honeycombs, which have a special meaning. Namely, the worker bee has been one of the most famous symbols of Manchester for more than 150 years and is part of the coat of arms of the Manchester City Council, which signifies the ethics of hard work, and the city as a hive of activities.
By the way, one of the royal rules is that there should be no tears in public, however, Kate has violated it several times. Although in 99 percent of the situation she is up to the task, the Duchess is trying to build the image of an immediate woman who has no distance from others, just as the late Princess Diana did.
