Royal Response to 2017 Westminster Attack


Following the shocking events in Westminster, Prince Philip and I are sorry that we will not be able to open the New Scotland Yard building as planned today, for very understandable reasons.  I look forward to visiting at a later date.

My thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy are with all those who have been affected by yesterday's awful violence.

I know I speak for everyone in expressing my enduring thanks and admiration for the members of the Metropolitan Police Service and all who work so selflessly to help and protect others.



King Philippe made a private phone call to Queen Elizabeth Thursday morning to express his condolences.



Your Majesty,

The Grand Duchess and I are shocked to hear about the news of the terrible events yesterday near Westminster.

The Luxembourg people join us in expressing to Your Majesty our most heartfelt sympathy for the victims and their families.

In these times of uncertainty it is of utmost importance to stand together in the defence of our common values.

"Shocked by the London attack, all our solidarity with the British people & their institutions in the fight against terror."

King Felipe also sent a telegram to Queen Elizabeth.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen and I wish to convey our sincere condolences on the tragic loss of lives following the dreadful attack in London yesterday. We offer our heartfelt sympathies to the families of the victims and to the people of the United Kingdom.

I haven't seen any messages from Liechtenstein, Denmark, Netherlands, or Norway. But it is very likely they sent their condolences privately.
