The Queen continues to maintain her role as a symbol of national unity during an age in which Britain's place in the world, British society and the role of the monarchy itself, have fundamentally changed.

The Queen has offered her condolences to the families of those who killed in the bushfires in Victoria. The death toll is now 108.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the Queen said:

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Queen of the United Kingdom

"I was shocked and saddened to learn of the terrible toll being exacted by the fires this weekend.

"I send my heartfelt condolences to the families of all those who have died and my deep sympathy to the many that have lost their homes in this disaster.

"On so dreadful an occasion as this for Australia, the firefighters and other emergency services have been making extraordinary efforts to contain the situation and tend to those who have been injured.

"Please also convey to them my renewed admiration for all that they are doing."
