Prince William reportedly expressed interest in writing to three kidnapping victims who watched his wedding to Kate Middleton on TV while being held captive by an Ohio man. Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were kidnapped by Ariel Castro between 2002 and 2004 and held captive for over a decade before Berry escaped from the Cleveland-area home in 2013. During an interview with the BBC shortly after the trio was rescued, Berry revealed they had watched Prince William's televised wedding to Princess Kate, telling broadcaster Kirsty Wark that the wedding "was happiness" to her. PRINCE WILLIAM CALLS FOR IMPROVED SAFETY ON SOCIAL MEDIA AFTER CORONER IMPLICATES PLATFORMS IN GIRL'S DEATH Now Wark has revealed that Prince William actually expressed an interest in writing to Knight, Berry and DeJesus shortly after the interview. "Stories like that are both awful and wonderful," Wark told the Radio Times. "Amanda Berry had a baby from rape, just 6 years old at the time. In that concrete basement, she drew pictures of the outside world, the streets, for her child." "It was humbling interviewing them. They shared that they had watched the royal wedding of William and Kate on television down there," she added. "I received a letter from Prince William a week later, asking if he could write to the girls. That was great." LIKE WHAT YOU’RE READING?
