Imagine you’re attending a special screening of the incredibly emotional film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and you receive the saddest possible news—that Nelson Mandela himself has passed away while you were watching.


That’s what happened to Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton last night. While attending a viewing, reportedly just the two royals were told about the death mid-movie, while the others in the audience were told at the end. William immediately recorded this response to the sad passing, with Kate standing by. Watch what he had to say!
