Anders and Anne Povlsen say thank you for messages of sympathy after losing three children in Sri Lanka terror attacks


Anders and Anne Holch Povlsen, who own 13 estates and around 220,000 acres in the Scottish Highlands, said the many words of comfort they had received since the tragedy last month have touched their hearts.

Their son Alfred, five, and daughters Agnes 12, and Alma, 15, were among 253 people killed in a series of blasts targeting churches and hotels in the country on Easter Sunday. Their youngest daughter, Astrid, 10, survived.

In an open letter placed as a full page advert in the Press and Journal and Scotsman newspapers, the Danish couple send their love and “deepest appreciation” to those who sent them messages of support.

Beginning the letter with a “thank you”, Mr and Mrs Povlsen wrote: “We extend our heartfelt gratitude for the condolences, sympathy and many warming thoughts we have received following the tragic loss of our three beloved and beautiful children; Alfred, Agnes, and Alma.
