Britain’s Prince Harry attends service to remember Tunisia victims
Britain’s Prince Harry attended a service at Westminster Abbey yesterday (12.04.16) to remember the victims of the Tunisia attacks.
The 31-year-old royal represented Queen Elizabeth at a service of commemoration for those who tragically died in the terrible attacks on the North African country last year.
A spokesperson for Kensington Palace said: “The service, for family members of those who lost their lives, or were seriously injured and those who witnessed the attacks in Tunisia, commemorated the British nationals who were killed during the attacks.
“Prince Harry laid a wreath at the Innocent Victims Memorial on behalf of The Queen before the Service, and delivered a reading during the Service itself.”
The service was attended by 900 people and both Prince Harry and the Prime Minister read passages from the Bible.
Speaking at the service, The Very Reverend Dr Hall said: “We remember with thanksgiving those whose lives were brutally cut short.
“We honour the courage of those who survived and the families of those who suffered. We share our grief with victims of attacks from other countries and their families.”
