William And Catherine Send Personal Message During Emotional Time

Australia is being ravaged by the worst wildfires seen in decades, which currently show no signs of abating.

Prince William and Kate showed their support to those affected by Australia’s devastating bushfires by sharing a personal message on their Instagram account.

The message of support reads: “‘We continue to be shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the wild fires that are destroying homes, livelihoods and wildlife across much of Australia. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people and communities who are affected by this devastating event.

“We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who have tragically lost their lives, and the brave firemen who continue to risk their own lives to save the lives of others.’ — The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”

The couple also shared a link to a list of organizations and charities providing updated information on Australia’s fires.

Prince William and Kate are not the only royals who sent their condolences to Australia.

On Saturday, Prince Harry and Meghan shared a series of horrific images on Instagram of the damage caused by the fires. They wrote: “Our thoughts and prayers are with those across Australia who are continuing to face the devastating fires that have been raging for months.

“From areas we are personally connected to such as the communities and people we visited in New South Wales in 2018, to the fires in California and parts of Africa, we are struck by the increasingly overlapping presence of these environmental disasters, including of course the destruction of the Amazon which continues.

“This global environmental crisis has now been described as Ecocide. It’s easy to feel helpless, but there’s always a way to help. To find out how you can lend your support, please see the links below to help as we have.”

The royals shared links to the NSW Rural Fire Service and the Red Cross Australia.
