The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, are welcomed Saturday by students from the British Council’s Somme project as they arrive at the Trocadero square in Paris.

PARIS — Prince William and his wife, Kate, met Saturday with survivors of the 2015 extremist attacks at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris and other city sites on the second day of their visit to the French capital.

During a visit to the Invalides monument, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge praised the courage of two victims who described the circumstances of their wounds and the effects on their lives.

One victim, identified only by her first name, Jessica, was wounded by seven bullets in one of the attacks. She told the British royals that she wants to show the attackers “they cannot win.”

“I am ambitious. I am still ambitious. I need to live and to work,” she said.

“You’re very brave,” Kate said.
