A message from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to Queenslanders affected by the bushfires

"Having visited Queensland in April, my wife and I are so deeply saddened to hear how the catastrophic bushfires are affecting so many people, particularly under continued drought and heatwave conditions. Our most heartfelt sympathy goes out to all those forced to evacuate and who have suffered so much as a result of these terrible fires.

We also want to extend our particular gratitude to the fire departments, emergency personnel, government officials and volunteers who came together from across the country to help their fellow Australians in their time of need. It is a true reflection of the indomitable Australian spirit that we have so long admired. 

Our special thoughts and prayers are with all Queenslanders at these most challenging and anxious of times."
