Queen Elizabeth made plenty of analogies to World War Two as the world fights against coronavirus.
She alluded to the fact that she has never seen a pandemic or crisis like this in all her 94 years. She said:
“Together we are tackling this disease and I want to reassure you that if we remain united and resolute, then we will overcome it.”
“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,” she said.
“The pride in who we are is not a part of our past, it defines our present and our future.”
The Queen was in a room on her own with just one cameraman and went on to say:
“I want to thank everyone on the NHS frontline, as well as care workers and those carrying out essential roles, who selflessly continue their day-to-day duties outside the home in support of us all.
“I am sure the nation will join me in assuring you that what you do is appreciated and every hour of your hard work brings us closer to a return to more normal times.”
