This is the touching moment the widow and son of murdered soldier Lee Rigby met Prince Harry at Buckingham Palace.


The fusilier’s son Jack was joined by his mum Rebecca Rigby at a special garden party hosted by Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to honour the fallen.


Jack, 6, was one of 800 children and teenagers who were invited to the palace for a funfair in honour of the kids of servicemen and women killed while serving their country, The Mirror reports.

“We met Harry briefly while we were spinning the plates. He’s a really nice guy. It’s great for the kids to meet other kids and to know there are others in the same boat,” Rebecca said.


During a moving speech, Prince Harry told their young guests:

We’re here to celebrate you and to remind you that we as a family, we as a nation, and we up and down the country will never ever forget about the sacrifices that every single one of you have made.

You are all together, you are one community of people that have been through the same experiences and for that every single one of us here, all the organisers, the three of us the whole of our family and the whole of this nation, thank you so, so much for everything you guys have done.

The cause is something that is understandably close to Harry and William’s heart, after they themselves went through the grief of losing their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales back in 1997.


Prince Harry recently admitted that he had counselling after her death, while William said that ‘the shock is the biggest thing and I still feel it 20 years later’.

Our thoughts will all these children who have lost their mothers and fathers while serving their country.
