The Countess of Wessex has paid her respects to the victims of the genocide in Rwanda.
Sophie visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial, where the remains of an estimated 250,000 people are interred.
Sophie was also shown some of the skulls displayed at the site as a reminder of the horror of the atrocity.
She described the memorial as “very moving” in a message in the book of condolence.
“A very moving and fitting tribute to those who were lost, but with hope for the future,” she wrote, signing her message “Sophie”.
In 1994, hundreds of thousands of members of the Tutsi community were slaughtered in Rwanda by ethnic Hutu extremists.
