Her Majesty The Queen discussed the impacts of the NSW and Queensland floods in a conversation with the Governor-General of Australia who released the following statement:

In recent communication with Her Majesty on the flooding impacting Australia, The Queen has asked that I pass on her thoughts to the people of Australia currently responding to, recovering from or preparing for the significant floods moving down the east coast. In particular, Her Majesty wished me to extend her sympathy to the loved ones of those who have so tragically lost their lives during this catastrophic event.

The Queen continues to be grateful for the tireless efforts of the many first-responders and volunteers who continue to brave extreme conditions to help save lives and protect property. It is this sense of mateship and a determined spirit that provides comfort and support to fellow Australians at this most difficult time.
