Britain’s Prince William took a moment during a gala ball to express grief over the temple fire that left more than 100 dead in Kerala.

The Duke of Cambridge was speaking at a gala ball held at Mumbai’s iconic Taj Palace Hotel, after he and his wife, Catherine, arrived for a week-long visit to the region.

PTI quoted William as saying to the guests: “Catherine and I would like to offer our condolences to all those affected by the terrible fire at the temple in Kollam. I know all of you in this room will join us in the sentiments.”

The fire, started by a fireworks display, engulfed the Puttingal temple complex early on Sunday morning. More than 100 people were killed and hundreds were injured.
