The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge have visited the football ground of Leicester to pay tribute to the victims of the helicopter crash, which killed the club’s owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
The royal couple, Prince William and Kate knew the Thai businessman, who had died with four others in the helicopter crash last month, outside the King Power Stadium.
Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha’s widow Aimon, son Aiyawatt and daughter Aroonroong were greeted by Prince William and his Princess Kate.

On Wednesday, Leicester City Captain Wes Morgan, Striker Jamie Vardy, and Manager Claude Puel were among the representative of the club at the ceremony.
Duchess Kate laid flowers at the tribute spot outside the stadium and Prince William stood beside her.
A card left with the flower bouquet reads, “To Vichai and all those who died in this terrible tragedy, you will be dearly missed. Our sincere condolences to the city of Leicester.”
Along with Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha, those who died in the tragedy were employees of the club, Pilot Eric Swaffer, his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz, Nursara Suknamai, and Kaveporn Punpare. Lechowicz was also a Pilot by profession.
