Shortly after receiving a warm welcome in Scotland, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William was hit with the news of the death of his son Prince George.
Buckingham Palace has since announced in a statement.
Though the statement did not mention the cause of his death, we are reliably informed that Prince William has been visiting the London Royal Hospital on several occasions with the Son Prince George.
He may have his own special title when he’s spending time in Scotland – the Earl of Strathearn.
But Prince William, 34, didn’t quite get into the spirit of things as he arrived in Stirling this morning on an official visit.
The royal visited the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regimental Museum where he received a traditional welcome from a kilt-clad bagpiper.
