“We will succeed – and that success will belong to every one of us”

On Sunday 5th April Her Majesty The Queen carried out a special televised address to the nation amid the coronavirus pandemic, this was only the fifth of her 68-year-reign.

While The Queen broadcasts a recorded message each year on Christmas Day, the only other events to be marked in this way are the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, the Queen Mother’s death in 2002, the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997 and the First Gulf War in 1991.

I am sure I speak on behalf of the entire nation when I say not only was it an honour to have a televised address from Her Majesty The Queen in such uncertain times, it was also comforting to hear that as a nation we are unite and we will succeed.
