Prince William And Kate Middleton Shared 'Incredibly Sad' News

The Prince and Princess of Wales took a break from their half-term holiday with their children to share a heartfelt message on social media.

Following the death of an RAF Pilot at RAF Coningsby on Saturday May 25, the pair wrote: “Incredibly sad to hear of the news this afternoon from RAF Coningsby. Our thoughts this evening are with the pilot’s loved ones, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and the wider RAF family.”

They signed off as “W & C,” confirming the message was sent directly by them. The Prince of Wales served as Honorary Air Commodore at RAF Coningsby from 2008 to 2023, before passing the role to the Princess of Wales in August 2023. This role involves building a relationship with the Air Station, supporting its personnel, staying informed about news and events, and highlighting its activities.

Officials confirmed that a pilot died after a World War Two-era Spitfire crashed in a field near an RAF station in Lincolnshire. The plane was part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight based at RAF Coningsby, and the RAF announced that a “comprehensive investigation” would be conducted.

The RAF statement reads: “It is with great sadness that we must confirm the death of an RAF pilot in a tragic accident near RAF Coningsby today. The pilot’s family have been informed and we ask that their privacy is respected at this difficult time.”

William and Kate’s last personal message was sent in April, when they paid tribute to the victims of a tragic stabbing attack in Sydney. The horrific incident at a Westfield shopping center in Bondi Junction resulted in six fatalities, 12 injuries, and surgery for a nine-month-old baby. A 40-year-old man was shot dead by an officer at the scene.

Following the ordeal, the Prince and Princess of Wales shared a joint message on their official social media channels that read: “We are shocked and saddened by the terrible events in Sydney earlier today. 

“Our thoughts are with those affected, including the loved ones of those lost and the heroic emergency responders who risked their own lives to save others.”

Prince George Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have been off school enjoying the May half-term, and Prince William, 41, and Prince George, 10, took the time to enjoy the FA Cup Final on Saturday May 25, days after William had to cancel a scheduled royal visit for Thursday last-minute, with Kensington Palace said: “We look forward to rescheduling in the future and are extremely sorry to anyone who has already travelled.”
