Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is “following from afar” as her homeland of Australia continues to battle devastating wildfires.

The royal mom released a statement to Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Sunday, sharing her condolences to those who have been affected by the wildfires, which have claimed the lives of at least 17 people and burned through more than 11 million acres since it sparked in September.

“In this time of great hardship caused by the ruthless bush fires, my husband and I would like to convey our warmest wishes to the Australian people as we enter a new year,” Princess Mary said. “Our heartfelt condolences to the families who have lost loved ones and our deepest sympathy to the many families who have lost their homes – their livelihoods. When the immediate crisis subsides and people can begin to return from where they have fled, our thoughts and concerns will remain with the affected local communities, as it will undoubtedly take great efforts and time for them to rebuild what has been lost.”
