During his Wednesday visit, Harry toured the popular tourist destination alongside security officer Ganga Garbuja, who was one of the first people to respond to the scene of the attack and helped lead several people to safety. The pair visited traders at the market. There, Prince Harry reportedly spoke to them about how their businesses were affected by the 10 days the market was shut down.
