The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Joan Rivers.

His Royal Highness said "Joan Rivers was an extraordinary woman with an original and indefatigable spirit, an unstoppable sense of humour and an enormous zest for life. She will be hugely missed and utterly irreplaceable".

Joan Rivers was a guest at Their Royal Highnesses wedding in 2005 and performed for His Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry at the “We Are Most Amused" comedy gala, in aid of The Prince's Trust, for his 60th birthday.
