Catherine, wife of Prince William, the second in line to the throne, chatted with patients, doctors and nurses at the King’s College Hospital, three miles south of the site of Britain’s third deadly attack in as many months.

Last week, England’s health authority said 10 people remained in critical condition after three Islamist militants drove into pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday night, then attacking people with knives in nearby bars and restaurants.

Of the 48 admitted to hospital, 29 were still being cared for, NHS England said on Wednesday.
