The Duchess of Cambridge has made a low-key visit to Clapham Common to lay flowers at a vigil in memory of Sarah Everard.

Catherine was spotted at the vigil by an ITV reporter as she walked across the Common.

Sarah Everard’s body was found in woodland this week after the 33-year-old went missing in South London on March 3.

A serving Metropolitan Police Officer, Wayne Couzens, 48, has been charged with her murder and kidnap.

He appeared before Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Saturday where he was denied bail and will make his next appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.

A large scale vigil had been planned on Clapham Common on Saturday evening near to where Sarah was last seen alive.

However, organisers said police failed to “constructively engage” on how the event could be held on light of restrictions on large gatherings.

Instead, they have urged people to hold their own doorstep vigils at 21:30GMT where people can light candles in memory of Sarah.
