Message from HRH The Prince of Wales to the Governor-General of New Zealand
Both my wife and I were utterly horrified to hear of the most barbaric attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, which
resulted in the cruel and tragic loss of so many people’s lives. It is beyond all belief that so many should have been
killed and injured at their place of worship and our most special and heartfelt sympathy goes out to all the families
and loved ones of those who have lost their lives.
This appalling atrocity is an assault on all of us who cherish religious freedom, tolerance, compassion and community. I
know that the people of New Zealand will never allow hate and division to triumph over these things they hold dear.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families, the first responders, the people of Christchurch and all New
Zealanders at this most heartbreaking of times.
HRH The Prince of Wales”
