Prince Charles, heir to the British throne said he was deeply saddened by the tragic images published from the nation as the death toll topped 200,000.
“Like many others, I have a great love for India and have enjoyed many wonderful visits to the country.
“Indian aid and ingenuity has been a support to other countries through this immensely difficult time. India has helped others, so now must we help India.’’

Prime Minister Boris Johnson added his support for India’s citizens, stating Britain had sent over vital medical equipment and would continue to support the nation with whatever help they needed.
