Meghan & Kate's Emotional Message After New Zealand Shooting

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released a joint statement after the horrific mass shooting in New Zealand , saying "evil can never defeat compassion and tolerance".

The message is directed to friends and family of the 49 people who lost their lives in the two attacks.

Both couples have visited the country on Royal Tours and praised the "warm, open-hearted and generous spirit that is core to its remarkable people".



A further 48 people were injured in the co-ordinated terror attacks, which both happened in mosques.

The Cambridge and Sussex message in full

Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the people who lost their lives in the devastating attack in Christchurch.

We have all been fortunate to spend time in Christchurch and have felt the warm, open-hearted and generous spirit that is core to its remarkable people.

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.
We know that from this devastation and deep mourning, the people of New Zealand will unite to show that such evil can never defeat compassion and tolerance.

We send our thoughts and prayers to everyone in New Zealand today.

Kia Kaha.
