LONDON — Buckingham Palace on Wednesday said Queen Elizabeth II has made a private donation to help relief efforts during the floods in Australia.

The palace said in a statement that the funds will go to the Premier of Queensland's flood relief appeal. It did not say how much the donation was.

The queen said last month in a statement that she has been following the news of the floods in Brisbane with great concern, and extended her sympathies to all affected.

British Prime Minister David Cameron spoke to his Australian counterpart Julia Gillard earlier Wednesday by phone to express his sympathy on behalf of the British people.
