Queen Elizabeth and Prince William Comfort Survivors of the Grenfell Tower Disaster


Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince William visited a West London site on June 16 where community groups have gathered supplies for those affected by the apartment tower fire disaster.

The queen, sporting a royal blue ensemble, met with volunteers, local residents and community representatives throughout their visit, as William reportedly called the tragedy "one of the most bad things I have seen".

During the 45-minute visit, the prince described the fire to one of the volunteers as "one of the most bad things I have ever seen", according to the Daily Mail.
