The Queen's message to the Governor-General of New Zealand, following the earthquakes in New Zealand.

I send my condolences to the families of those who were killed and to the people whose homes and businesses have been affected

Her Majesty The Queen

Prince Philip and I were shocked to hear news of the severe earthquakes that struck on Monday. I send my condolences to the families of those who were killed and to the people whose homes and businesses have been affected.

Our thoughts are with you at this time.
