Prince William and Prince Harry

The 35-year-old royal and his brother Prince Harry, 32, paid a visit to the Support4Grenfell Community Hub in Kensington on Tuesday (06.08.17), which they help set up after the blaze tore through the block of flats in west London killing over 70 people.

Both William and Harry have spoken in recent months about how they struggled to talk about the death of their mother Princess Diana for years after she was killed in car crash in Paris in August 1997.

William met Andreia Gomes, who escaped the burning building with her husband Marcio, but tragically lost her son to a stillbirth after the fire, at the centre and told her two daughters how important it is not to keep their grief to themselves.

He told them: "Talk about your loss, promise me."

The girl's father has praised William and Harry for their support and the invaluable advice he gave his children.

According to E! News, Marcio said: "The princes were amazing. They really knew what they were talking about. You could see that they meant what they were saying.

"They have seen so many families impacted by the tragedy, and they know what they are going through.

"Everyone grieves in different ways. It is important that when someone is in pain that they have someone to talk to - not just next month, but next year or the year after."

The royal siblings day wasn't finished there, they then headed to Al-Manaar, the Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, which was one of the first to respond to the incident, to see the work they are doing still to provide counselling and care to those who lived in the flats.
