Prince William Visits Survivors of Christchurch Terror Attacks

Prince William is in New Zealand meeting survivors of the Christchurch terror attacks and thanking locals for their kindness and empathy in the aftermath of the tragedy.

50 people lost their lives in the shootings at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques on March 15.

One of the survivors is 5-year-old Alen Alsati who recently woke from a coma. She was shot multiple times, suffering critical injuries and was unable to speak or eat when she first woke up. She’s now on the road to recovery.

Here she is having a lovely chat to the Duke of Cambridge about his own little girl, Charlotte:

Accompanied by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Prince William has also spent some time praising New Zealanders for their unity in the face of such a horrific event.

He says, “I stand with you in optimism about the future of this great city. I stand with you in grief for those we have lost and with support for those who survived. And I stand with you in firm belief that the forces of love will always prevail over the forces of hate.”
