Prince William helps paint community center for Grenfell Tower fire victims ahead of royal wedding

Prince William put on a hard had and got to work on Tuesday.

Just days ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding, the Duke of Cambridge took the time to give back to the victims of the tragic June 2017 Grenfell Tower fire in London. William joined a crew working to build a new community center to help replace a boxing club that was destroyed in the fire, which took 71 lives.

The event was filmed for The BBC One show, hosted by Nick Knowles, and will be broadcast later this year. For the charity work, William wore a blue sweater and slacks under a green reflective vest and protective headgear.

He was photographed painting a wall at the center as well as talking with the construction crew.

One precious shot features Louis’ older sister, Princess Charlotte, cradling him and planting a sweet kiss on his forehead. The photos were taken on Charlotte’s third birthday.

William will be playing a big role in his brother’s wedding in Windsor, England, this weekend. He has been named Harry’s best man, the role which Harry held for William’s 2011 nuptials.
