After attending a vigil for Sarah Everard, the Duchess of Cambridge has written a personal letter to her family.
The 33-year-old’s death has struck Kate Middleton deep, much like the rest of the country after she disappeared while walking home from a friend’s house in south London earlier this month.
Kate revealed she “remembers what it was like to walk around London at night before she was married” via a statement after she attended the vigil for Sarah in Clapham Common and laid daffodils in her memory.
She has now written to Sarah’s family to offer her condolences and share her sadness.
A source told The Mirror: “Kate’s letter was deeply personal and heartfelt, she expressed her absolute sadness at what Sarah’s family and loved ones are going through.
“She said she knows that no words can change what happened but that she wanted to let them know that they and Sarah are in her thoughts.
“This was a private matter to her and she wanted to show unity with everyone else who shares these feelings.”
Kate, 39, previously lived less than three miles from Clapham, South London, where Sarah vanished on March 3.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson said: “We do not comment on private correspondence.”
Met Police officer Wayne Couzens, 48, has been charged with Sarah’s kidnap and murder.
He worked for the armed Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection unit.
He has been remanded in custody and a provisional trial date has been set for October 25.
