Meghan Markle, Prince Harry Pay Their Respects To New Zealand Terror Attack Victims


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry paid their respects to the victims of the New Zealand mass shooting that left at least 50 people dead.

“Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the people who lost their lives in the devastating attack in Christchurch,” says a statement issued by Kensington Palace on behalf of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“No person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship,” the statement continued. “This senseless attack is an affront to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand, and the broader Muslim community.”

“It is a horrifying assault on a way of life that embodies decency, community, and friendship. We know that from this devastation and deep mourning, the people of New Zealand will unite to show that such evil can never defeat compassion and tolerance.”

Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camila, Duchess of Cornwall issued their own statements also speaking out against the shootings.
