Princess Kate and Prince William ‘send love and prayers’ to Seoul Halloween stampede victims after more than 100 killed

PRINCE William and Princess Kate have today sent their “love and prayers” to the victims of the Seoul Halloween stampede.

Princess Kate and William took to Twitter to send their support to those who died and their loved ones after the tragedy that killed more than 100 people unfolded yesterday.

On their joint Twitter account, the Prince and Princess of Wales wrote: “Catherine and I send all our love and prayers to the parents, families and loved ones of those tragically lost in Seoul yesterday evening.”

The couple signed off the message “W & C”.

It comes after a deadly crush killed at least 153 Halloween fans in Seoul, South Korea, on Saturday night.

South Korea’s President Yoon Suk-yeol declared a period of national mourning on Sunday, describing the crush as “truly tragic”.

Tens of thousands of Halloween fans had attempted to push down a narrow alleyway just 12 feet wide when the tragedy occurred on Saturday night.

Chilling pictures show the area crammed with party-goers barely able to move moments before the stampede.

Excited teenagers and young adults had poured into the capital to enjoy the first unrestricted Halloween celebrations in three years since Covid regulations were lifted.

But instead they found themselves caught up in a terrifying stampede as the festivities had attracted a dangerous amount of people.

Witnesses say the crowd became increasingly “agitated” as the evening went on.

Shortly before 10.20pm, the situation became out of control as a stampede broke out as people were forced down the tight, sloped alleyway after it was already packed wall-to-wall with people.

Those at the top of the 147ft long pathway started to fall, sending people below them toppling over others.
