The royal couple toured the site, which has since been turned into a museum honoring the thousands of victims during World War II. They viewed exhibits which showed the living conditions of the camp’s prisoners.

William and Kate also had the opportunity to speak with three surviving former prisoners of Stutthof, who spoke of their experiences in the camp.
Clad in a white, floral-printed skirt and top, Kate toured the grounds and paid tribute to the 28,000 fallen victims at the Star of David monument alongside her husband. Both were then led in prayer by two of the camp’s survivors.
