THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT IS ISSUED BY THE PRESS SECRETARY TO THE QUEEN
The Queen recognises that the aftermath of the terrorist bombings will lead to financial hardship, and she has therefore made a substantial donation to the London Bombings Relief Charitable Fund.
Her Majesty hopes that her donation, along with donations from others, will go some way in helping the victims and their families to cope with the aftermath of the attacks which took place in London on 7 July 2005.
Following the bomb blasts in London on 7 July 2005, various members of the Royal Family have visited London transport staff and workers from the emergency services to thank them for their work.
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall visited St Mary's Hospital in Paddington the day after the attacks. The Queen met staff at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel on the same day. Read The Queen's speech at the Royal London Hospital.
The Duke of York visited Transport for London staff and the Metropolitan Police at CentreComm, the London Buses Command and Control Complex in Buckingham Palace Road on 8 July 2005.
The Earl of Wessex visited the London Control Centre of the British Transport Police and the London Underground to speak to staff about their experiences and their work in the aftermath of the attacks on 9 July 2005.
The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester went to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital to meet staff dealing with victims sent there for specialist treatment.
The Princess Royal visited University College Hospital on Gower Street on 11 July 2005. The Hospital was treating 14 victims of the attack, five of whom were in the intensive care unit.
Her Royal Highness thanked Accident and Emergency staff and met victims of the blast who were being treated in the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital. The Princess Royal then signed the condolence book at City Hall.
