Royals join bereaved families in London tower fire memorial

Prince Harry comforted the bereaved relatives of the Grenfell Tower fire victims at a memorial service today.

Six months after the devastating Grenfell Tower blaze took 71 lives and left countless others homeless, Kate Middleton put her best style foot forward in London on Thursday, as she joined Prince William and Prince Harry at a memorial service for the victims of the June tragedy.

A visibly emotional Adele struggled to hold back tears at the Grenfell Tower memorial service at St Paul's Cathedral, London today (14 December).

Hundreds of mourners gathered outside the historic cathedral clutching white roses and comforting each other beneath a banner with "Grenfell" inside a green heart.

Many of Grenfell Tower's former residents say that the local council neglected them before the fire, and that the disaster might have been prevented if officials had heeded their concerns.

Also present was Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Prime Minister Theresa May, who entered through a side door, rather than the main entrance.

She said: "I just pray that this is a wake-up call for the nation and a shake-up call for the government, and let them be seen doing the right thing. It's been nearly 6 months now, we must keep on talking about what is still not happening xx".

In the day after the fire, Prince William and The Queen met with survivors and the families of victims.

Mourners console one another as they leave St. Paul's Cathedral after a Grenfell Tower National Memorial service.

The singer has been a supporter of survivors and rescue workers since the fire happened.

"And yet my hope and prayer is that this new year can bring new hope of a future, a vision of a city where we lose our self-obsession and listen and learn from places and people that we wouldn't normally think of reaching out to".

Families held photographs of victims of the fire, while voice recordings from people at the scene of the fire were played to the congregation.
