    Prince Harry says missing the London Marathon after the Boston bombings was ‘never an option’.

    Less than a week after the Boston bombing atrocity that left three dead and more than 180 wounded, Prince Harry was waiting at the London Marathon finish line handing out medals to winners.

    Prince Harry told the BBC missing the annual event yesterday ‘was never an option as far as I was concerned.

    ‘Everyone that was planning on coming is still here. No one’s changed any plans.’

    While competitors held a 30-second moment of silence in honour of those who didn’t finish their race, the Prince also paid tribute to the victims, saying: ‘The way Boston has dealt with it has been absolutely remarkable’

    He added: ‘It’s never going to get anyone down here…everyone comes together.’

    Prince Harry attended the event without his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton but prior to handing out medals to winners at the finish line Harry joked, ‘She’s pregnant and he’s getting old. It’s impossible.’
