”Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people and communities who are affected by this devastating event.

”We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who have tragically lost their lives, and the brave firefighters who continue to risk their own lives to save the lives of others.”

While Kate is expected to accompany the future king on this visit, the last time the Duke of Cambridge visited Australia on his own was after the Queensland floods of 2011.

Prince William also went on a solo official visit to New Zealand last year, in the wake of the Christchurch shooting tragedy.
