The Prince of Wales pays tribute to the actor Robin Williams

Published on 12th August 2014

The Prince of Wales is deeply saddened to hear of Robin Williams' death.

The Prince of Wales said: "He was a remarkable man, whose wonderfully frenetic humour brought a special kind of laughter into people's lives. I greatly enjoyed meeting him on several occasions and his irreplaceable contribution to life will be greatly missed by countless people, including myself."

In November 2008, Robin Williams performed at the" We are Most Amused" show in aid of The Prince’s Trust. The Prince of Wales attended the event and was accompanied by The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry: http://www.princehenryofwales.org/news-and-diary/trh-and-prince-harry-attend-we-are-most-amused-honour-of-the-prince-of-waless
