A message of condolence from The Queen to the Governor-General of Canada

Published 11 January 2020

Philip and I have been deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life following the crash of the Ukrainian Airlines aircraft in Iran.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Canada, which has suffered such a devastating loss.

I extend my deepest condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of all those Canadians, and indeed other nationalities, who died, and to the many others who have been affected by this terrible event.

Elizabeth R.
