Duchess of Cambridge visits victims of London Bridge terror attack in hospital

The Duchess of Cambridge met with the victims and staff at King's College Hospital at around lunchtime on Monday, in a visit that wasn't publicised in advance.

The attack resulted in 8 tragic deaths, and 48 people were also injured on June the 3rd.

Eight people were murdered during the atrocity on June 3, when three attackers ploughed into pedestrians with a white van before stabbing revellers in Borough Market with 12-inch ceramic knives. She praised her and the other royals for visiting the hospital. "What you do is remarkable", she told them, according to People.

Middleton personally talked to doctors, nurses and staff members from the hospital's Emergency Department who where on shift during the attack.

Kate said: "To go through this sort of event twice, it is quite unprecedented".

Before leaving today Kate is due to meet with senior hospital officials and get the opportunity to find out more about the psychological support that staff and patients have received following the attacks.

Aides said that the press was not notified in advance of the visit, as they did not want media focus and presence to obstruct the staff's ability to treat those affected.

"It is nice when you have got someone like the Duchess of Cambridge who comes along. Someone like that coming along and recognizing that, it is a massive lift". It gives the patients a lift, it gives the staff a lift that they are being recognised, ' he added.

Speaking about the night, head of nursing Lynne Watkins-Hulme said: "What was really noticeable on Saturday night was the amount of female patients that were involved".

The Deputy Mayor for Policing Sophie Linden said: "We don't think the Met can take any more budget cuts and savings".

The attack killed eight people and injured four dozen more.

He also privately visited the Manchester Royal Infirmary to meet some of the young survivors of the terrorist attack. To have six women stabbed multiple times - that was upsetting'.
