According to a newspaper report, the British Duchess Kate wrote to the relatives of crime victim Sarah Everard. “Kate’s letter was deeply personal and heartfelt,” the Daily Mirror newspaper quoted an unnamed source as saying.
The Kensington Palace announced that it did not want to comment on “private correspondence”. Sarah Everard, 33, was allegedly kidnapped and killed by a police officer from a street in south London in early March. Kate had laid flowers in memory of the young woman during a vigil.
Prince William’s wife expressed her sadness over the loss that Sarah’s family and friends experienced, it said. “She wrote that she knew that words couldn’t change what happened.” But she wanted to let the relatives know that she and Sarah are on her mind.

Media reported that Kate remembered what it was like to walk the streets alone in the evening as a young woman. From the environment of Sarah Everard’s family it was said, according to “Mirror”, the letter “extremely touched” the relatives.
