Amid the terrible bushfires still raging all over the east coast of Australia, Prince Charles has sent a moving video message to the Australian people, calling them "special and resilient".

The Prince of Wales posted a two-minute video on the Clarence House Twitter account in which he seemed really upset as he delivered a heartfelt message to all Australians.

He starts out by admitting that it is a "hopelessly inadequate way of getting a message to you that both my wife and myself are thinking of you so very much at such an incredibly difficult time and in such impossible and terrifying circumstances".

He goes on to say that both him and his wife Duchess Camilla have been "in despair" as they were "watching this appalling horror unfolding in Australia and witnessing so much of what you're having to go through."

Prince Charles is "thinking of all those remarkable, courageous, determined firefighters"

The future King of England went on to praise the firefighters and first responders: "But above all, we wanted to say how much we've been thinking of all those remarkable, courageous, determined firefighters who have done so much and worked ceaselessly to exhaustion."

"And we feel so deeply for the families of those who have been lost and have lost their lives in the course of carrying out their remarkable duties, as only they can do," the Prince of Wales added.

"We also think of all the Australian wildlife that is destroyed in these appalling infernos, let alone everything else. I know, we both know, just how incredibly special and resilient the Australian people are, so I know at the end of the day, despite all this horror, you will find a way to face it all and win through."

Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison took to Twitter as well to respond to Prince Charles' message, saying that he was "grateful to [...] the Royal Family for your sympathies and support."
