In a rare speech, reminiscent of war-time, Queen Elizabeth addressed a worried Nation, thanking the people for staying home and praising those “coming together to help others”. This is only the Queen’s fourth address to the UK in her 68 year-reign.
“While we have faced challenges before, this one is different.”
“This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavor, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal. We will succeed – and that success will belong to every one of us.
“We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.”
