During the visit, Duchess met six patients injured in the attack and praised the efforts of doctors and nurses and remarked: ‘To go through this sort of event twice, it is quite unprecedented‘, as the victims of March 22nd were also treated by the staff of the hospital.
As per the story of Rebecca English from Daily Mail, Duchess said, “‘It must have been a busy night for you. Teamwork seems fantastic. Have you ever experience anything like this before? The quick response everyone had was really impressive. Well done.”
Catherine’s visit came after the visit of Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel last week. Staff and royal aids believe the royals visiting victim and staff is a morale booster.
Catherine discussed the psychological support for those affected by LondonBridge with staff at King’s College Hospital. She met the staffs of trauma wards, as well as patients who are being treated at King’s after being injured at London Bridge.

For the sombre visit, Catherine chose a very simple tweed outfit by New York-based Kiwi designer Rebecca Taylor. We have seen the dress previously on two occasions in 2012 and then in New Zealand during the 2014 tour.
Catherine’s shoes were a pair rarely worn, the Calogera style by Manolo Blahnik. They were first seen during the tour of Canada in 2011.
