The World is in Mourning
To President Obama
I have been deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the dreadful loss of life today in Newtown, Connecticut; particularly the news that so many of the dead are children.
Prince Philip joins me in extending our heartfelt sympathy to you and the American people at this difficult time.
The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the United Kingdom and throughout the Commonwealth are with the families and friends of those killed and with all those who have been affected by today’s events.
