People reported that Prince William broke royal protocol during the visit when he hugged and tried to comfort an inconsolable woman whose husband went missing during the fire. The woman’s husband was reportedly trapped in an elevator during the blaze.

Traditionally, touching a member of the royal family is reserved for handshakes only. Other victims said that the prince seemed very compassionate during the visit.
