THE DUKE & DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE VISIT BIRMINGHAM IN THE WAKE OF THE RECENT RIOTS

William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, visited Birmingham, England, which was one of the cities hid hardest by the riots that took place recently.  They met with the families of three men who were tragically killed during the riots.   They also met with business owners, residents and emergency service workers.   The couple’s visit was met with enthusiasm from the local community.   Other royals have also recently lent their support to riot-stricken areas of the country.  Prince Harry visited Manchester and Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, have visited London.
