The Duke of Cambridge has expressed his grief over the Hindu temple fire in south India in which more than 100 people were killed.
William was speaking during a gala ball at Mumbai's Taj Palace Hotel, after he and his wife, Kate, arrived for a week-long visit to the region.
Press Trust of India quoted William as saying to the guests: "Catherine and I would like to offer our condolences to all those affected by the terrible fire at the temple in Kollam. I know all of you in this room will join us in the sentiments."
The blaze, started by a fireworks display, engulfed the Puttingal temple complex early on Sunday. More than 100 people were killed and hundreds of others were injured.
