Members of the royal family have joined survivors and families of those who died in London's Grenfell Tower fire for a memorial service to remember the 71 people killed in the June blaze.

Prince Charles, his wife Camilla, Prince Harry, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the multi-faith service at St. Paul's Cathedral, held exactly six months after the June 14 fire that engulfed a residential tower block in west London.

Emma Dent Coad, a politician for the neighbourhood, said "emotions are still very raw" and the service was a "recognition that people from all walks of government are going to come down and grieve with them".

A total of 71 people, including a stillborn baby, died in the fire, which quickly spread through the 24-storey public housing tower.
