The Queen’s message of thanks, hope and resilience

The Queen has given her fifth national address of her reign. She spoke to the United Kingdom, and the Commonwealth, about the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic.

She delivered her message in Windsor Castle’s White Drawing Room, with just one camera operator who was dressed in full protective equipment.

She praised the NHS and other key workers for all they are doing at this difficult time. She thanked people who are staying home and not seeing their loved ones in a bid to stop the spread.

She finished by looking to the future, saying “better days will return” and that we will all be with the people we love soon.
