Prince William and Kate pay tribute to Leicester City crash victimsTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -Britain’s Prince William and his wife Kate left a personal message of condolence as they paid tribute to Leicester soccer club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha during a visit to the team’s stadium where he was killed in a helicopter crash last month. 

Thai billionaire businessman Vichai, 60, and four others died when their helicopter crashed and exploded outside the King Power Stadium after a Premier League game against West Ham.

William, President of the English Football Association, and Kate met Vichai’s wife, son and daughter at a dedicated tribute site bedecked in flowers, scarves and flags set up in his memory near where the accident occurred.

As they approached, the couple bowed their heads and Kate laid a bouquet of flowers. An accompanying hand-written note read: “To Vichai, and all those who have lost their lives in this terrible tragedy, you will be sadly missed. Our sincere condolences to the city.”

It was signed “William” and “Catherine”.

The royals, officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, then met Leicester manager Claude Puel, a group of players including club captain Wes Morgan, England striker Jamie Vardy and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel as well as club supporters and volunteers.

Vichai bought the unheralded central England side in 2010 and went on to stun the soccer world by beating odds of 5,000/1 to win the Premier League title in 2016.
