Prince Harry Surprise-Visits London Terrorist Attack Victims at Borough Market

X

Prince Harry is full of praise for London's strength of community in the aftermath of the tragic London Bridge terrorist attack earlier this month. In fact, he even referred to the city's comradery as "magic."

On Thursday morning, the royal paid a visit to London's Borough Market to celebrate its reopening less than two weeks after the June 3rd tragedy, which killed eight civilians and injured dozens more.

As the bustling marketplace opened its doors on Wednesday morning, with emotional traders linking arms during a marked moment of silence, Prince Harry arrived the next day according to a Kensington Palace spokesperson: "[He] was keen to come down as soon as possible to spread the message this vibrant market is open for business."

During his hour-long excursion, the 32-year-old made sure to speak with those directly affected by the attack, including the staff of Matt Jones's "Bread Ahead," who fought the terrorists with brooms and crates, as well as Jack Appleby—the man who risked his safety manning the shutters at the Market Porter pub.

Harry also toured the stalls and met with the security officers who were on duty during the night of the attack while remarking: "The strength of this community and London as a whole is magic."
