Queen Elizabeth sent a message on Friday, 17 October 2019, to the Governors and people of New South Wales and Queensland following this year’s devastating bushfires.
Prince Philip and I have been deeply saddened to hear of the tragic loss of life and property caused by bushfires affecting communities and businesses across northern New South Wales and South East Queensland.
I am heartened that once again the richness of spirit that defines Australians has drawn people together to support those in need.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the victims.
Both Governors have posted the message on social media, including Facebook.
Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AO QC
