Prince Harry meets widow and son of Lee Rigby

Prince Harry became a plate-spinning children's entertainer when Buckingham Palace was transformed into a funfair for the sons and daughters of the fallen.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Harry hosted hundreds of youngsters at the Queen's famous London home for Party at the Palace, a open-air festival in honour of the children of servicemen and women killed while serving their country.

Harry joined the widow and son of Fusilier Lee Rigby, who was killed by two Islamic extremists outside Woolwich Barracks in south east London in 2013. The pair were later jailed for life.
