King Charles is continuing to stay updated on the unfolding situation in Israel and Gaza.

Today, Buckingham Palace shared on their social media chanels that King Charles met with various charity representatives: Medical Aid for Palestinians, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, and UNICEF UK. "Earlier today, His Majesty The King, as President of the @BritishRedCross, held an audience at Buckingham Palace for representatives of charities operating in the Middle East, including Gaza, to discuss the acute humanitarian situation," the Palace wrote.

Medical Aid for Palestinians was the only Palestinian-specific charity included, and according to their website, they are a UK-based organization that "works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees."

A few days after the Hamas terrorist attacks, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson shared, "This is a situation His Majesty is extremely concerned about, and he has asked to be kept actively updated. His thoughts and prayers are with all of those suffering, particularly those who have lost loved ones, but also those actively involved as we speak." Later, he met with the United Kingdom's Chief Rabbi, Sir Ephraim Mirvis at Buckingham Palace.

Rabbi Mirvis shared, "At a time when Jews around the world are grieving following the unspeakable evil perpetrated against loved ones in Israel, I want to thank His Majesty King Charles III for expressing in person his deep concern, and his support for the Jewish community. His words of comfort and solidarity give us strength at this dark time."
