An incredible picture has emerged of Prince William tenderly embracing a victim of the Grenfell Tower disaster.
Fatima Jafari, 78 – whose husband went missing in the Grenfell Tower inferno – rests her head on William’s chest and hugs him, whilst the prince in turn hugs her back, ditching royal protocol in an extraordinary display of compassion.
The picture emerged following the William and the queen’s visit to an emergency shelter helping to aid survivors of the fire.
Mr Jafari, 82, has not been seen since he became trapped in a lift while trying to flee the burning building in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
A friend of the Jafaris said Fatima has been 'inconsolable' since losing her husband.
She added: 'The prince saw her in tears and went over to comfort her.
'A council worker explained to him what had happened and he told Fatima he would do everything he could to find her husband. She keeps saying, "I am nobody, but the Queen and future King of this country came to see me. They really care".'
