Her impromptu arrival surprised staff members, who were not notified ahead of time. She met with the survivors as well as hospital workers and volunteers and took in a tour of the grounds.

Kate Middleton wore a navy tweed Rebecca Taylor skirt suit. She previously wore the ensemble during a royal tour to Australia in 2014.

The most recent incident saw three terrorists drive a car into bystanders on London Bridge before attacking a crowd with knives, leaving eight people dead and 48 injured. The attackers were shot down by the police.

The royal family continues to support the victims affected by the recent attacks in the U.K. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall headed to the Royal Hospital to visit patients after the London Bridge attack. Following the Manchester bombing at the Ariana Grande concert last month, Queen Elizabeth II traveled to Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital to meet with those affected, while the Duke of Cambridge signed the Book of Condolence at Manchester Cathedral. The young royal also laid a wreath at Wembley Stadium just before the start of the FA Cup final, which read: “We will never fear coming together to celebrate all that unites us. In memory of the friends and family taken from us in Manchester.”
