The Queen said that she prays for the victims and the survivors, for the bereaved families, as well as for those who saved people, and for the emergency services.
Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain expressed her condolences to the residents of the United States and other countries affected by the events of September 11, 2001, on the day of the 20th anniversary of the tragedy. Her Majesty’s message addressed to U.S. President Joe Biden was distributed on Saturday morning by the press service of Buckingham Palace.
“As I remember the 20th anniversary of the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, together with my family and with the whole country, I think and pray for the victims and the survivors, for the bereaved families, as well as for those who saved people and for the emergency services,” the Queen’s letter says. – I remember well how in 2010 I visited the place where the World Trade Center was located. That visit reminds me that while paying tribute to the memory of the deceased people who professed different religions, had different origins, and were citizens of different countries, we should also pay tribute to the steadfastness and determination of residents who united to restore what was destroyed.”
