'Trooping the Color' in London for Queen's Official Birthday

19 June 2017, 02:34 | Lucia Cruz

"In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of bad tragedies", she said in a statement according to the Guardian. It has 24 floors total, and 120 apartments on 20 residential floors.

In her official birthday message a day later, the queen addressed the latest tragedy to hit the nation.

Addressing the British people on her official birthday, Queen Elizabeth wrote of a "very sombre national mood" following a "succession of awful tragedies" that have befallen the British people over the last number of months. "But this is not going to be one of those exercises of using a public inquiry to delay a response".

"Both myself and colleagues from London Fire Brigade have already said it will take weeks".

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, second right, looks at donations made to the members of the community affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower in west London during a visit to the Westway Sports Centre which is providing temporary shelter for those who have been made homeless in the disaster, Friday June 16, 2017.

First Secretary of State Damian Green, May's deputy, said the prime minister was "distraught" and shared "the same degree of sympathy and horror" as everyone else.

Service on two London Underground lines has been partially suspended because of concerns about the safety of the high-rise in the fire that killed at least 30 people.

May is chairing a government task force on the fire and a spokesman says that she will meet afterward with "a group of residents, victims, volunteers and community leaders" at No. 10 Downing Street.

A solemn Queen Elizabeth II marked a minute of silence on Saturday for victims of the London highrise inferno that killed at least 30 people as exhausted firefighters continued their grim search for more bodies.

The prime minister has committed £5m for clothes, food and emergency supplies but was heckled with chants of "coward" after she met survivors of the fire.

Residents furious over the handling of the Grenfell Tower disaster descended on the local town hall in west London Friday, shouting, "We want justice". The public is also demanding answers about how the blaze spread so quickly amid reports that the recently-renovated building's exterior paneling fueled the flames.

The names of those who died are beginning to emerge.

The UK has promised a full public inquiry, and announced a fund of 5 million British pounds ($6.4 million) to help those affected by the blaze.

Many wept openly as candles illuminated the road outside the Latymer Christian Centre, yards from the site of the blaze.

But the government has been criticized for failing to act on recommendations from previous tower block fires.
