Prince Charles and Camilla have paid a moving tribute to the victims of the Nice terror attack as they met relatives of those killed.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall honoured the 86 people who lost their lives in the attack during a visit to a memorial in the city.
The Royal couple stood in silence at the Villa Massena as they looked at the memorial, which reads En Memoire De Nos Anges – In Memory Of Our Angels.
In July 2016, a lorry ploughed into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, killing 86 people and injuring more than 400 others.
Charles laid a bouquet of flowers at the memorial and later spoke to airport worker Franck Terrier, who the prince hailed as “courageous” and “remarkable” for trying to stop the attacker.
Speaking after their meeting, Mr Terrier said: “The prince said it was an honour to shake my hands and so did the duchess.”
Anne Murris, whose daughter 27-year-old Camille Murris was killed in the terror attack, spoke to Charles about her collection of 86 stones each painted with the name of one of the victims.
Ms Murris said: “It’s an honour to have this visit. It’s very important because these stones represent the dead, they represent our loved ones and our city and its past.
“But the stone also represents a hope for the future, for our tomorrow. We hope to live in peace.”
Accepting the stone as a gift, Charles said: “I hardly think I merit it.”
Charles and Camilla are on a five-day tour of France and Greece.
Before commemorating the terror attack victims, the Royal couple were greeted by Nice’s mayor, Christian Estrosi, and his wife Laura Tenoudji, a television journalist.
They also visited Fragonard Perfumery in Eze where they sampled a selection of scents produced at the site.
Mr Estrosi will make Charles an honorary citizen of Nice during the trip.
