Prince William offered his sincerest condolences to the family, friends, and loved ones of the Malaysia Airlines Flight that was shot down over Ukraine yesterday.
The 31-year-old royal spoke at an event at Australia House in London, where he addressed the tragedy.
"I know that I speak for all of us here when I acknowledge our deep sadness following yesterday's disaster in the Ukraine," he said. "For all of us who've lost fellow countrymen and women in the tragedy, words cannot do justice to our sense of loss."
The Duke of Cambridge added that the timing was especially difficult, as it's only been a few months since the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
"For Australians and for our Malaysian brothers and sisters in the Commonwealth, the crash is a particularly cruel tragedy, coming so soon after the loss of MH370."
