Message to Acting Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service Craig Mackey
Thursday 23rd March
Following the shocking events in Westminster, Prince Philip and I are sorry that we will not be able to open the New Scotland Yard building as planned today, for very understandable reasons. I look forward to visiting at a later date.
My thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy are with all those who have been affected by yesterday’s awful violence.
I know I speak for everyone in expressing my enduring thanks and admiration for the members of the Metropolitan Police Service and all who work so selflessly to help and protect others.
