The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge to visit Leicester City to pay tribute to helicopter crash victims

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Leicester next week to pay tribute to those killed in the tragic helicopter crash at the city’s King Power Stadium last month.

The Duke, who is President of the Football Association, was a friend of the club’s chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died in the crash.

Both the Duke and Duchess will visit the city on Wednesday 28th November as they wanted to recognise the warmth and compassion that the people of Leicester and fans of Leicester City Football Club have shown in reaction to the accident.

William & Catherine will begin the day by visiting the tribute site near the stadium to pay their respects to those killed in the accident.

They will then meet with a group of players and members of the Club’s management team. The royals will then will then meet volunteers and club supporters who helped to relocate the thousands of tributes which were left outside the front of the stadium to the site.

Afterwards, Their Royal Highnesses will enter the King Power Stadium itself where they will meet with representatives from local charities who were supported by Mr Srivaddhanaprabha.

Later on in the day, William & Catherine will visit the University of Leicester to hear about some of the educational programmes that Leicester City Football Club has helped to support.
