Celebrities have been paying tribute to the victims and survivors of the Grenfell fire on the one year anniversary of the tragedy.

The official death toll from the tragedy stands at 72 with hundreds severely injured. A fire ripped through the tower in the early hours of the morning accelerated by plastic cladding

A memorial service was held in West London today and a minute of silence was observed across England. The English football team will pay their respects by holding a minute of silence before their first World Cup game in Russia today.


Meghan Markle and the Queen joined the country in pausing to remember the residents of the tower.

The fire took 60 hours to put out and 72 of the 293 people in the block lost their lives. The cladding on the building is deemed illegal in other jurisdictions due to its flammability.

Other celebrities have been expressing their sorrow by taking to social media to pay their respects.
