Queen Elizabeth sends US message of support on 9/11 anniversary

Queen Elizabeth sent a message of support and unity to President Biden Saturday as part of her commemoration of the 9/11 attacks.

“As we mark the 20th anniversary of the terrible attacks on September 11, 2001, my thoughts and prayers – and those of my family and entire nation – remain with the victims, survivors and families affected, as well as the first responders and rescue workers called to duty, the monarch posted to the Royal Family’s official Twitter account posted.

“My visit to the site of the World Trade Centre in 2010 is held fast in my memory,” the message to Biden continued.

“It reminds me that as we honour those from many nations, faiths and backgrounds who lost their lives, we also pay tribute to the resilience and determinations of the communities who joined together to rebuild.”
