Queen praised for touching message to Joe Biden on 9/11 anniversary


    The official Twitter account of the Royal Family tweeted the message from the Queen to Joe Biden, the President of the USA, on the morning of the 20th anniversary. The Royal Family Twitter account had captioned the message saying: “The Queen’s message to the President of the United States on the 20th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001.”

    The message from the Royal Family read: “As we mark the 20th anniversary of the terrible attacks on September 11, 2001, my thoughts and prayers – and those of my family and the entire nation – remain with the victims, survivors and families affected, as well as the first responders and rescue workers called to duty.

    “My visit to the site of the World Trade Center in 2010 is held fast in my memory.

    “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 determination of the communities who joined together to rebuild.”

    Twitter users praised the Queen for this message to Joe Biden, with one saying: “Your Majesty. I am sure that your message will reach into the hearts of those who were affected by the atrocities of 9/11 be they Americans or other nationals.

    “Today we grieve as one people on #911Memorial.”

    In response to the above tweet, one Twitter user replied: “I know this is a very hard day for you my @lorrie_e as you were affected in so many ways. I am with you my love.

    “I hope that we soon can unite as one world without hate, greed and violence.”

    It is said that Mr Biden will be protected by a large number of security personnel amid security fears on the day of the anniversary.

    Sixty-seven Britons were killed on the day of 9/11, and were the second-highest country when it comes to deaths per country.

    The Queen has paid her respects on a number of occasions to the 9/11 attacks, with the Queen laying a wreath in 2010 at the World Trade Centre.

    Furthermore, a mere two days after the 9/11 attacks, the Queen had approved the Coldstream Guards band to play the American national anthem.

    This was the first time that the Star-Spangled Banner had ever been played during the Changing of the Guards.
