The royal couple arrived in town Friday morning to meet with the parents of Haroon Jahan, 21, and brothers Shazad Ali, 30, and Abdul Musavir, 31, who were mowed down by a car on the third day of the British riots.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge then met with local residents at Summerfield Community Centre in Winson Green, where they greeted by Paul Sabapathy, Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands, Councillor Anita Ward, the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, and Chris Sims, Chief Constable of West Midlands Police.

While at the Summerfield Community Centre, William and Kate, both 29, spoke with all 80 local ambulance workers. "We want to show our continued support," they said.

On his way out, William told reporters that he and his wife (wearing a $960 Alexander McQueen skirt and $1,315 Alexander McQueen blouse) were "full of admiration for the dignity of the families have shown dealing with their losses."

On Thursday, William's younger brother, Prince Harry, 27, visited a fire station and ambulance headquarters to thank crew members for their hard work during the riots.
