A message of condolence from The Countess of Wessex to the President of the Republic of Lebanon.

Published 06 August 2020

I was shocked to hear of the explosion at the port in Beirut and the surrounding area.

I have fond memories of the people of Lebanon after visiting your country last year in June. My thoughts are with all those affected by this tragic incident, as well as everyone supporting them.

My prayers go out to the victims and their families.

- The Countess of Wessex
