The coupled paid a visit to the September 11th Memorial at Ground Zero. Despite the rain they made their way to the reflecting pool, and at the panel commemorationg United 93, while William held the umbrella, Kate layed a wreath with an accompanying note:
"In sorrowful memory of those who died on 11th September and in admiration of the courage shown to rebuild." The names of victims are etched into the panels. Kate remarked on the size of the memorial, and that she particularly liked the ability to trace the names with her fingers. Because of the rain, they were escorted into the museum quickly, but spent a generous amount of time taking in the artifacts and tributes, including the walls covered with the pictures of the victims and a mosaic with a quote by the Roman poet Virgil. The couple completed their visit to the National 9/11 Memorial and moved to visit The Door to learn about the work this charity undertakes in collaboration with City Kids Foundation.
