It’s thought that over 80 people have died as the result of Greece’s wildfires, which took hold of massive stretches of land near Athens at the start of this week.
Greek authorities have revealed that they are continuing the search for people who are missing following the deadly blaze, including those who escaped to sea.
60mph winds are thought to have caused the spread of the fire, which began on Monday, trapping many residents in their homes.
Currently, investigators are looking in to whether or not the fires around Athens were started intentionally.
So far, members of the royal family, including Sarah’s daughters Beatrice and Eugenie, have not yet offered up an official statement regarding the Greece fires.
