The Queen’s heartfelt message to those devastated by the California wildfires

Queen Elizabeth II has extended her heartfelt sympathies to Duchess Meghan’s home State of California amid wildfires that have devastated the region.

Over the past few weeks two major fires have burned nearly 250,000 acres in the Golden State of California and killed 74 people, according to CBS News.

Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Gerard Butler, Camille Grammer and Robin Thicke are among the celebrities whose homes have been destroyed by the wildfires.

Across the pond but still in their hearts, Queen Elizabeth II proved Duchess Meghan’s home state of California is on the royal family’s minds when she released a heartfelt statement addressing the wildfires in the area.

“Prince Philip and I offer our deepest sympathies to the people of California, who continue to suffer from the devastating fires across the state.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the victims, and to all those who have lost their homes and livelihoods. I pay tribute to the courage and dedication of the US emergency services and the volunteers that have provided support,” the Queen said in a statement on Saturday.

This as US President Donald Trump has arrived in California to survey the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state’s history.

The death toll from the “Camp Fire” in Northern California has increased to 71 with around 1,011 people unaccounted for. CBS News reports that the blaze is now 55 percent contained after consuming more than 148,000 acres.

In Southern California, just outside of Los Angeles, the Woolsey Fire is 82 percent contained after burning 98,362 acres.

On Saturday (California time) the President is expected to walk around to see the damage caused by the Camp Fire.
