"The Duchess knows that no words can change what has happened, but wanted to let them know that they and Sarah are in her thoughts.
“She remembers what it is like to walk alone as a young woman in London, and elsewhere, and like so many other women she has been thinking deeply about her experiences during those times.
“It was important for her to pay her respects in this way.
"This was a private matter to her and she wanted to show unity with everyone else who shares these feelings.”
Kate previously paid her respects to Sarah as she attended the memorial for her at Clapham Common, as the impact of her tragic death sent shockwaves around the country.
