Prince Harry, Meghan pay respects for New Zealand shooting victims

Britain's Meghan Duchess of Sussex visits the New Zealand High Commission to sign a book of condolence on behalf of the Royal Family in London

Their visit came after a gunman shot dead 50 people at two mosques during Friday prayers at the Al Noor Mosque near Hagley Park and at the Linwood Mosque.

The royal couple then signed the book of condolence with the word "arohanui", which The Daily Mail reports translates to "with deep affection". "We are with you" in her distinctive script.

The couple also both placed bouquets of flowers outside the building after being greeted by the New Zealand High Commissioner to the UK, Sir Jerry Mateparae.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the New Zealand High Commission in London overnight to pay their respects to those killed in the Christchurch mosque terror attacks.

The Sussexes were in New Zealand last October as part of their first royal tour.

At eight months pregnant and with no further official royal commitments on the calendar for Meghan Markle, she would have been forgiven for not making any public appearances before the birth of baby Sussex for any reason.

The visit was arranged on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen as the newlyweds were the last royals to visit New Zealand.

"Prince Philip and I send our condolences to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives". She has told well-wishers that she is due in April. 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", the statement read. This senseless attack is an affront to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand, and the broader Muslim community.
