It’s been a matter of months since George Shelley’s sister Harriet was tragically killed in a car accident in Bristol, which led to George becoming a bit of a recluse.
He made his first public appearance since the death of his sister at the beginning of July, at record label Warner’s GQ Summer party and also released a statement about the trauma he has been through.
Last night he broke his silence again with a heartbreaking tribute to Harriet on his Instagram page, which showed a picture of bouquets of beautiful flowers along with a heart shaped plaque that read: “For my beautiful Harriet. “Made by me”. Love and miss you millions and so, so much more. All my love mummy xxxx”
To go with the picture George wrote the comment: “Mum has made your bed look beautiful sis, it’s gorgeous just like you. Miss you. I love you x,” to which a lot of well wishers responded with sympathy and support.
The photo has over 20,000 likes, with many people telling George to stay strong. One fan said: “I’m still so in shock this happened.. stay strong George, I love you so much, she’s an angel in Heaven now with my dad.”
Another commented: “Stay strong ….. she doesn’t want to know that she’s the reason for ur sadness… ilysm!!! [sic]”
George, who became famous in boy band Union J, last posted a tribute to his sister on May 13, a week after her death. He posted a playful pic of the both of them along with the caption: “I will never accept that you’re gone. You will always be with me. My best friend, my sister, my angel.
“Too pure and too beautiful to walk among humans, you now exist somewhere else, and I am honoured to have had the privilege to spend 21 years with you by my side. Don’t get used to it up there without me, I’ll see you soon beautiful girl. I love you Harriet.”
Harriet was only 21 when she died after suffering serious head injuries due to a car accident on April 28 in Bristol. She went into intensive care but unfortunately passed away on May 6.
To coincide with George’s first public outing since the tragedy, earlier this month, he told The Sun: “This is the first time I’ve been out in a couple of months. I’ve had the worst year of my life but I’ve just got to try and get on with things.
“The love and support has been overflowing and it helps… My lovely boyfriend has been great and supportive.”
