‘We sent an ambulance crew, a responder by car, an advanced paramedic, a medical team from London’s Air Ambulance by car and a duty officer to the scene.

‘Sadly, despite our attempts to resuscitate the patient, a woman died at the scene.’

The London Fire Brigade also attended the incident and was working to remove the tree.

The incident took place as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were meeting president of Singapore Tony Tan Keng Yam and his wife nearby at the start of their state visit.

The meeting, at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington High Street, was Kate’s first official engagement since it was announced she is expecting her second child.
