The queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland gave a message historical this Sunday against the pandemic that has hit your nation. Eloquent, understated and, especially, empathetic, the sovereign spoke to his people with a speech full of hope.
“We’ll see,” said the grandmother of princes William and Harry.
“We should console ourselves that, while we have more to endure, will best days: we will be with our friends; we will be with our families again; we will meet again,” said the queen.
This is a very special time in the 68 years that he has been the sovereign on the throne, as it is the fifth message on television. The other times that the queen Elizabeth II he has addressed his nation with a message for tv have been the following: on the death of Diana of Wales, in 1992, by the Gulf War in 1991, the death of the Queen Mother in 1997, and in the week of his jubilee diamond 2012.
This time it was different. There is fear and tension in the air of the Uk and the rest of the world. The monarch, 93 years old, expressed appreciation for the work that they have done the health services of their nations and also acknowledged the effort of all those who work voluntarily to stop the spread of the virus.
“I know that it is a time challenging. A moment of interruption that has brought grief to some, financial difficulties, many and great changes in the everyday life of all of us. Together we tackle this disease and I want to assure you that if we remain united and determined, what we will overcome. I hope that in the next few years all be proud of the way they responded to this challenge.”
After the wave of scandals that has seen queen Elizabeth II, from the relationship of his son the prince Andrew with the child molester Jeffrey Epstein, until the escape of prince Harry and Meghan Markle of the royal family, queen Elizabeth II showed strong and very attached to his people.
For this reason, dozens of celebrities expressed their gratitude to the sovereign, and extended their recognition in social networks.
Piers Morgan, one of the presenters of television’s most popular in United Kingdom, described the monarch as the brightest star in the world.
Queen Elizabeth II’s rare televised address on the Coronavirus was pretty inspiring. As she herself said, it echoed the speech she and her sister Margaret delivered in 1940. Call me sentimental, but I was deeply moved.
