Prince William returned to royal duties after pulling out of the memorial service for his godfather, the late King Constantine II of Greece earlier this week.

The Prince of Wales met with the survivors of Holocaust in the Western Marble Arch Synagogue in central London to partake in discussions about the rise in anti-Semitism in Britain.

He reassured the attendees of his strong stance against prejudice, noting he and his wife Kate Middleton “are extremely concerned about the rise in anti-Semitism that you guys have talked about this morning and I'm just so sorry if any of you have had to experience that.”

“It has no place... that's why I'm here today to reassure you all that people do care and people do listen and we can't let that go,” William added.

The future King of England recently sparked concern after he pulled out of a reading at St. George’s Chapel due to a “personal matter” at the very last minute.

His latest appearance also comes in the midst of current discourse about the whereabouts of Kate as she has been out of the public eye for over two months after undergoing abdominal surgery in January. 

The British royal family also mourned the grave loss of Thomas Kingston, husband of Prince and Princess of Kent's daughter Lady Gabriella Windsor over the weekend.
