The Duchess of Cambridge has paid tribute to those affected by the terror attack in Westminster yesterday. Ahead of a speech at an engagement in London, Kate paused to remember those killed and injured in the attack.

The Duchess of Cambridge was speaking as she attended an event at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in London where she is launching a series of films about parents and infants' mental health by the charity, Best Beginnings. Ahead of her speech, Kate told the audience that '' I know you would all want to join me in sending our thoughts and prayers to all those sadly affected by yesterday's terrible attack in Westminster. We will be thinking of all the families, as we discuss the important issues we're here to talk about.''

Earlier in the day, the Queen sent a message to the Metropolitan Police in which she said her 'thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy are with all those who have been affected by yesterday's awful violence.''  The Spanish Royal Household has tweeted a message of solidarity following the attack while Prince Albert of Monaco has written to the Queen to express his condolences. Four people, including a police officer, were killed and the attacker died after the incident in Westminster on March 22nd 2017.
