By Rachel McRady
Honoring those lost. Kate Middleton and Prince William made a special trip to the U.S. Embassy in London on Tuesday to sign a book of condolences for the 49 victims of the Orlando, Florida, shooting from over the weekend.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge signed their special messages in front of a commemorative flag presented to the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by the LGBT organization Kaleidoscope Trust.

“Our hearts go out to all of those who have lost loved ones and to those who have been injured in this unspeakably barbaric attack. You are in our special prayers,” the royals wrote to the victims’ families.
After they signed, William and Kate spoke with representatives from the embassy’s LGBT network GLIFAA.
Kate stood out at the event in a cherry red dress, coat, and hat after sporting a cream getup for the Trooping the Colour. Sadly her two adorable children, George and Charlotte, were not in attendance at Monday’s festivities despite making a precious cameo over the weekend.
