As you’re probably aware, a lone gunman chose to kill 49 people and wound dozens more at a LGBT nightclub in the city on Sunday.

The Royal Couple visited the embassy to pay their respects to the victims of the attack and give their condolences to those affected. William wrote the following message:

“With our deepest condolences and with our thoughts and prayers to all those affected.”
