Prince Harry And Meghan Paid An Unscheduled Visit to Pay Tribute to New Zealand Christchurch Shooting Victims


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made an unplanned visit to New Zealand House in central London to pay their respects to the 50 people who died in the Christchurch shooting.

Upon their visit, the royal couple who visited New Zealand in 2018 signed a book of condolence on behalf of the royal familys. Above their signatures were the words: “Our deepest condolences… We are with you.”

Below the signed condolence was the Maori word “arohanui,” which translates to “much love”.

50 people were killed and another 50 injured in shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday, after a gunman armed with semi-automatic weapons opened fire indiscriminately on men, women and children from close range.

Shortly after reports New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called one of the country’s “darkest days”, tributes from across the world poured in.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Harry and Meghan, shared their thoughts and prayers in a statement, saying: “No person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship…

“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.”
