The Prince wanted to show his support to the Borough community and thank local traders for their bravery during the attack.

Borough Market reopened yesterday following the London Bridge Attacks that claimed the lives of eight people.

Prince Harry paid a visit to London's oldest food market to show his support for local traders who have been affected.

Prince Harry wanted to help spread the message that this vibrant market is now re-open to the public. 

During the visit, Prince Harry met some of the traders who were there on the night of the attack, including security officer Ganga Garbuja – who was first on the scene and led several people to safety.

The Prince also spoke to bakers from Bread Ahead, whose staff protected members of the public.

HRH also had the chance to meet managers and staff from some of the popular bars and restaurants that surround the market.

These venues were very busy during the attack, and Prince Harry had the chance to thank the staff that worked in the restaurants, whose quick-thinking and bravery saved many lives.
