Kate Middleton Visits London Attack Victims At King’s College Hospital

Kate Middleton made a surprise visit to King’s College Hospital in London on Monday. According to People Magazine, the Duchess of Cambridge visited with several of the victims injured in the June 3 London terror attacks. Just over one dozen people were taken to King’s the night of the attack. There are still about 12 people in that particular hospital recovering from their injuries. Their conditions at this time are unknown.

On that fateful Saturday night, three men drove a van into a crowd of people walking on London Bridge. After mowing down the crowd, the men got out of the van and started stabbing people on the street. Eight people were killed in the attack, later claimed by ISIS. Another 48 people were injured, several listed in critical condition upon arrival at area hospitals. The three men believed to have been responsible for the attacks were identified as Khuram Shazad Butt, Rachid Redouane, and Youssef Zaghba. All three men were killed by police at the scene.

Duchess Kate arrived at the hospital earlier today. She was greeted by the hospital’s chief executive, Nick Moberly, and professor Julia Wendon. Kate also met other members of the hospital’s staff including Jane Bond of Gold Command and Silver Command’s Mark Madams, both of whom are staff leaders “trained to deal with major incidents.”

The Duchess of Cambridge spent an undisclosed amount of time at the hospital. Despite arriving alone, however, her husband has also taken some time out of his schedule to pay his respects to those injured in the recent UK terror attacks. According to People Magazine, he was in Manchester on June 2. While he was there, he met with police officers and also made a stop at a local hospital to visit with victims injured in the Manchester Arena attack that occurred during an Ariana Grande concert on May 22.

“Prince William… spent a day in Manchester on June 2 paying tribute to those who had worked to help in the immediate aftermath of the terror bombing at the Ariana Grande concert on May 22. He also privately met some of the young victims in hospital. Twenty-two people, including many children and teenagers, died in that attack…William spent much of his day in Manchester asking if police officers and other emergency staff were getting the support they needed.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t the only royals visiting hospitals and paying their respects following the unthinkable attacks. Last week, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, visited a hospital treating attack victims.

In other Kate Middleton news, the Duchess and her husband are planning to move their family from Anmer Hall to Kensington Palace in a few short months. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Middleton has allegedly taken on a bit of a lighter schedule for the summer as she prepares to move with her two small children. The family will be living in London for the very first time since welcoming Prince George back in 2013.

Prince George and his younger sister, Princess Charlotte, will be heading to school in London in the fall.
