Prince Charles 'horrified' by quake

Posted by: 3AW Radio | 23 February, 2011 - 9:52 AM
Prince Charles has offered his sympathy to Australia

A message from The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to The Prime Minister of New Zealand and The Governor-General of New Zealand:

"My wife and I were horrified when we heard the news early this morning of a second major earthquake to hit an already damaged Christchurch.

The scale of the destruction all but defies belief when we can appreciate only too well how difficult it must have been struggling to come to terms with last year’s horror.

At such a terrible time I realize (sic) that these words count for very little, but I did so want you to know immediately just how much we feel for all the families and friends of those who have so tragically lost their lives or are still missing.

Our deepest sympathy and constant thoughts are with you and all New Zealanders at such an agonizing (sic) time for the whole country."

  • Horrified is a pretty big word from a bloke that has to stare at Camilla Parkherballs (aka Dutchess of Cornholl) for most of the day.
