“Do you have a daughter” 5 years old New Zealand terror attack victim, asks Prince William after she woke from coma (video)

Prince William, who is in New Zealand on a two-day solo visit, paid a visit to a 5-year-old victim of the Christchurch mosque massacre and they shared a very touching moment.

The Duke of Cambridge attended an Anzac Day ceremony in Auckland earlier in the day before he made his way to Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland. In the hospital, he met Alen Alsati, 5, who is recovering after she was critically injured in the deadly attack on two of Christchurch’s mosques last month, which killed 50 people.

Alen Alsati just woke from a coma earlier this week after the attack which happened in March. 

Lying in a hospital bed with the Prince sitting by her side, Alen asked the royal: “Do you have a daughter?”

And William replied: “Yes, she’s called Charlotte.”

Alen asked again: “What’s her name?”

And William replied: ” She’s called Charlotte. She’s about the same age as you.”
