Earlier this week, Prince Harry visited Borough Market to help the London landmark reopen after the June 3 terrorist attack that killed eight and wounded 48 others. The market reopened on Wednesday, 11 days after the attack took place both in the market and on the nearby London Bridge.

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.

Harry bought some doughnuts and produce from some of the vendors, including Bread Ahead, whose employees helped hide visitors to the market at the time of the attack.

The attack on Borough Market and London Bridge was the second in London in a matter of days. It came just after a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device in the lobby of a Manchester arena just after Ariana Grande finished a concert. London is also reeling after this week's fire at a public housing project, which has killed 17 people so far.
