The royals were appropriately somber as they took turns to sign the book. Prince William reportedly wrote, “With our deepest condolences and our thoughts and prayers to all those affected.” The Duchess simply signed “Catherine,” beside her husband’s name.

The royal couple signed the book in front of a flag given to Hillary Clinton by the LGBT rights group, The Kaleidoscope Trust.

Afterwards, the pair met with embassy officials who have worked on LGBT rights. The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and Prime Minister David Cameron have also expressed their condolences and solidarity for the victims of the deadly attack.
