The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge honored the victims of 9/11 earlier today at the memorial and museum.
Upon their arrival this morning, William and Kate placed a bouquet of flowers on the south pool on the panel containing the names of the victims of Flight 93. The bouquet included a note, which the couple signed, reading: “In sorrowful memory of those who died on 11th September, and in admiration of the courage shown to rebuild.”
9/11 Memorial Museum President Joe Daniels then led the royal couple on a tour of the museum.
Their visit to the 9/11 Memorial Museum was part of a three-day trip to New York, which began Sunday. Prince William met with President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday.
