Kirstie Allsopp, 49, praised Kate Middleton’s “quiet dignity” as she visited Clapham Common to pay her respects for “murdered” Sarah Everard, 33. The Duchess of Cambridge’s remarkably low key public display comes just days after Meghan Markle, 39, gave a landmark interview to Oprah Winfrey alongside husband Prince Harry, 36.
Couldn’t be more impressed
Kirstie shared a news article of Kate paying tribute to Sarah and typed in view of her 423,600 followers: “When I thought I couldn’t be more impressed by her quiet dignity.”
She then retweeted a post from another user, that read: “This has moved me massively. No doubt there will be cynics decrying this but I believe Kate has done this with true sisterhood.”
Kate visited Clapham Common where tearful members of the public, were gathering to mourn the loss of Sarah after vigils around the country were cancelled by police.
A palace source told Sky: “The Duchess wanted to pay her respects to Sarah and her family.
“She remembers what it felt like to walk around London at night before she got married.”
Kate attended the site on a private visit and laid flowers from the garden at Kensington, it’s been reported.
The Duchess of Cambridge appeared low key as she wore jeans paired with a khaki trench coat while walking quietly around the park’s bandstand.
Sarah disappeared after walking home from a friend’s flat in south London on March 3, and her body was later found hidden in a bag in an area of woodland in Ashford, Kent, on Wednesday.
A serving police officer was arrested on suspicion of the murder, and was later identified as Wayne Couzens, 48.
Today he arrived in a central London court in a large blue police van from HMP Wandsworth and went into the dock at 10.30 am.
Kate’s paired back appearance comes just days after Meghan opened up on her experience of being a senior member of the royal family while living in the UK.
In one stunning revelation, the Duchess of Sussex claimed her son Archie Mountbatten had been denied a prince title due to “concerns” over his skin colour.

She told Oprah: “They were saying they didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security.
“This went on for the last few months of our pregnancy where I was going, hold on for a second.”
According to Meghan, the decision for Archie not to have a title nor security was made in tandem with “concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie’s] skin might be when he’s born”.
Despite not having a title, Archie is currently seventh in line to the throne, one place behind his father, Prince Harry, who is sixth in line to the throne.
On Twitter, Kirstie raised her eyebrows at the remarks made by Meghan over Archie’s title, as she retweeted a headline that questioned if race had been a factor behind Archie not being made a prince.
Alongside the article, the Location, Location, Location star simply typed: “No,” in view of her 423,000 followers.
The star also reflected on Archie’s lineage, as she revealed there are many others in the royal family not directly in line to the throne, who are also not princes either.
Kirstie shared: “In 1961 the only sister of The Queen had a son, David, when born he was 5th in line to the throne, he’s not a Prince. Almost 60 years later, when the Royal Family is trying to downsize & modernise, it seems unlikely that the 7th in line would be a Prince, but maybe it’s racism.”
