Meghan Markle conducts secret visits to the site of the Grenfell Tower fire to comfort victims

Meghan Markle has visited the site of the Grenfell Tower fire secretly on a couple of occasions to comfort the victims of the tragedy.

According to an exclusive article in the Daily Mirror, Meghan has visited the site on her own on two occasions.

Speaking to The Mirror, one resident said: One ­resident said: “Meghan’s visits mean so much to us. She has a special place in our hearts.”

It is understood that the bride-to-be had been making numerous private visits to charity sectors around the UK to get to understand their work before marrying into The Royal Family in little under 100 days time.

On a visit to Grenfell, she went to the Al Manaar Community Mosque which is located a short distance away from the charred remains of the tower.

She made the visits alone, with only a security officer and royal aide for company.

The Al-Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre was one of the first places to offer help to those left homeless after the fire. Al-Manaar has been providing food, water and shelter as well as counselling to those in need, ever since the incident occurred.

71-people were killed in the Grenfell Tower fire last year in the borough of Kensington – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s home.

In the days after the disaster, many members of the Royal family visited rest centres and first responders.

The Queen visited volunteers and rescuers to hear personal accounts of the disaster. At the time, she was joined by The Duke of Cambridge.

The Queen paid her respects to both the “bravery” of the firefighters, as well as meeting those affected by the blaze face-to-face.

Princes William and Harry have also been involved in comforting those people whose lives have been torn apart by the inferno.

Last year, the brothers met with a group of therapists who are helping people to talk about what they have been through, as well as the Grenfell women’s group who offer support to one and other as well as cooking meals for people left without a home.
