Prince William honored the victims of the Manchester concert attack at the Emirates FA Cup Final between Arsenal and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium in London. The royal paid tribute to the 22 people that were killed and all the people that were injured by laying down a wreath of flowers and participating in a silent moment dedicated to the victims. Kensington Palace also tweeted a handwritten note from the prince that reads, "We will never fear coming together to celebrate all that unites us. In memory of the friends and family taken from us in Manchester."

Since the horrific attack, the royal family has been spreading hope and healing to the people of Manchester. William released a statement on behalf of himself, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry, while Queen Elizabeth II also did the same. The queen personally visited a few of the attack's youngest victims in the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, and the community in Manchester has shown strength by uniting for a citywide minute of silence as cities around the world showed their support.
