Princess Kate Middleton visited the hospital where numerous victims are being treated to show support for patients and staff. One was able to leave soon after arrival.

Upon her arrival, the Duchess praised the hospital staff by saying, "Well done".

Well-wishers from across the city laid flowers at the scene, where eight people died and dozens more were injured after three terrorists drove a van in crowds before leaping out and randomly stabbing people.

Dr. Malcolm Tunnicliff, clinical director and consultant in emergency medicine at the hospital, told the Evening Standard that the duchess's visit was appreciated.

The remaining 13 required treatment for stab wounds of varying severity.

There are still seven people in critical condition. "It could be that they had plans to take the attack in to a siege situation or it might be that they saw it as protection from being shot themselves".

She was greeted by the hospital's chief executive, Nick Moberly, and professor Julia Wendon. She also spoke to two team leads, Jane Bond of Gold Command and Silver Command's Mark Madams.

Kate wanted to come to the hospital to show support to those who were hurt in this senseless attack.

Hospital staff are accustomed to seeing male patients with stab wounds, but never have they seen so many women needing the same treatment.

"It's very easy to believe the fear but boil it down and we are actually, in the main, good people and we should remember that", she added.

"Prince William... spent a day in Manchester on June 2 paying tribute to those who had worked to help in the immediate aftermath of the terror bombing at the Ariana Grande concert on May 22".

"We are one of the busiest hospitals in western Europe for dealing with penetrating injuries, but it was the volume and it is usually young men that stab each other, and there were quite a lot of ladies who were stabbed".

The Duchess of Cambridge has made a surprise hospital visit to meet with those affected by the London Bridge attacks, a terror-driven rampage which left eight people dead and 48 more injured.
