Prince William and wife Kate paid their public respects to the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks on Tuesday.

The royal couple signed the book of condolence at the French Embassy beneath a hand-written message from William: “To all those who have died and were injured in the heartless attacks in Paris, and to all the people in France: Nos plus sincères condoléances.”

They headed to the embassy in Knightsbridge, not far from their Kensington Palace home, early in the afternoon.

Later in the day, William will show solidarity with Paris in a different way as he attends the friendly soccer match between France and England at Wembley Stadium in London.

Across the city, Kate is to reward three young people at the Fostering Excellence Awards.

Earlier Tuesday, William carried out an investiture on behalf of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth, 89, including handing out a C.B.E honor to Jonny Wilkinson, who shot the winning kick in the Rugby World Cup final victory in 2003.
