Prince William is helping with the Grenfell Tower renovations after a deadly fire broke out in the building last year.

In a fragment of a TV renovation show shared on Twitter by Kensington Palace Wednesday, the Duke of Cambridge is seen painting a wall in a new youth boxing club.

“It is one of the worst disasters in the modern era in this country. I think everyone is shocked by how cruel, how horrible it all was. I think everyone is playing catch-up, trying to work out how you deal with a really terrible situation,” William tell “DIY SOS host Nick Knowles.

He continues: “But for the community, they are reliving it all the time, so we need to… progress needs to happen. The community coming together is the first important part of the definition of that. But there is still much to do.”

On 14 June 2017, a fire broke out on Grenfell Tower that killed 72 people.

The tragedy was the greatest loss of life in a fire on British soil since the Second world War, the leave of the district and the country in shock.
