Prince William and Kate visit Leicester crash site
It was a month ago when helicopter owned by Leicester City Football Club chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, crashed just outside the King Power Stadium killing all the passengers on board but it still has not been forgotten in the eyes of the football community and in the eyes of the Football Association President and Duke of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton.
The couple visited the crash site today to hear about all the charities the chairman had supported and met some of the players before heading off to the University of Leicester. Prince William confirmed that he felt ‘lucky’ to have known Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha for many years. On arrival at the Stadium, still home to a tribute in honour of Vichai, Prince William exchanged a few words with Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, Mr Vichai’s son before introducing Kate.
Kate and Prince William put a bouquet of flowers at the tribute alongside a message which was signed by the couple and said "To Vichai and all those who died in this terrible tragedy, you will be dearly missed. Our sincere condolences to the city of Leicester."
The Duke made further remarks about Vichai and said that he was a ‘man who cared deeply about his family and also his community‘. William also praised the Clubs achievement, referring to their Premier League shock win in 2015/16.
