Prince William Reacts to Nelson Mandela's Death (Video)

Prince William has spoken out about the death of former South African president Nelson Mandela moments after watching the new movie Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

The 31-year-old royal was attending the London premiere of the new film when news broke about Nelson‘s death. Reports suggest that William and his wife Kate Middleton were told about the death while the movie was playing, but the audience didn’t find out until after the credits played. A two minute moment of silence was held in the theater.

“It’s obviously extremely sad and tragic news. We were just reminded of what an extraordinary and inspiring man Nelson Mandela was, and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family,” William told reporters while Kate stood by his side.
