For a member of the royal family, who spends a large part of his or her professional life in and around any number of historic structures, many of them places of worship, the Notre-Dame fire might hit particularly hard. On Tuesday, both the Queen and Prince Charles issued their condolences in statements that a British news outlet referred to as “rare emotional messages” from the senior royals, who do not often get so personal or heartfelt in their reactions to such events.
