Mumbai - Prince William took a moment during a gala ball to express grief over the Hindu temple fire that left more than 100 dead in south India.

The Duke of Cambridge was speaking at a gala ball held at Mumbai's iconic Taj Palace Hotel, after he and his wife, Catherine, arrived for a week long visit to the region.

Press Trust of India quotes William as saying to the guests: "Catherine and I would like to offer our condolences to all those affected by the terrible fire at the temple in Kollam. I know all of you in this room will join us in the sentiments."
