Queen Elizabeth II has spoken out in support of Haiti following the devastating earthquake the country recently experienced. As Hello! shares, the monarch penned a letter to Haitian prime minister Ariel Henry on Monday, where she addressed the impact of the natural disaster.
Queen Elizabeth II shares her "thoughts and prayers" with Haiti
Queen Elizabeth II opened her message by expressing her sorrow as she reflected on the tragedy Haiti has gone through. "I am deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life and destruction caused by the earthquake in Haiti," she wrote. She then went on to directly mention those who have been affected.
The royal acknowledged the many people whose situations have changed drastically, as well as the importance of frontline workers. "My thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost their lives, loved ones and homes, as well as the emergency services working in the recovery effort," she concluded the letter. She also used her usual sign-off, "Elizabeth R".
Queen Elizabeth II experienced a loss of her own earlier this year when Prince Philip passed away, briefly pausing her royal duties to mourn him. In the past, the monarch has also been known to share messages of support for nations that are experiencing a period of hardship. And back in July, she penned a special note to honour the NHS!
