First lady Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, entertainment figures like Idris Elba, Cher, Maisie Williams, Dua Lipa and many more expressed the horror they felt on witnessing the devastation the Notre Dame cathedral fire has caused.
The Parisian architectural spectacle went up in flames as it was undergoing renovations Monday.

A French interior ministry official revealed the cathedral may not be saved by firefighters.
Melania, had something more sensitive and touching to say on the matter. "My heart breaks for the people of Paris after seeing the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral. Praying for everyone’s safety," FLOTUS posted. It was soon followed by first daughter of the United States, Ivanka, who expressed her shock and horror on the topic, tweeting: "Watching flames engulf the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. A devastating and shocking sight. Praying for the safety of all."
Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau tweeted along the same lines, sharing: "Absolutely heartbreaking to see the Notre-Dame Cathedral in flames. Canadians are thinking of our friends in France as you fight this devastating fire." He followed it up with another post in French, which roughly translates to the previous tweet.
