Queen Elizabeth II has just delivered an official address in the UK about the coronavirus pandemic – her basic message … stay tuned, all of you !!!
We are about to turn around, but that is the essence of Her Majesty’s speech. QE2 urges the British to maintain their determination, their good mood and spirit about them and all of this together … we will all come out on the other side of this difficult time, on the other side of the pond and beyond.
You can see the entire speech above, but what’s interesting is the Queen’s historical nature, of seldom making such comments – this rarely happens outside of Christmas.
The address on Sunday is only the fourth time that Liz spoke to the public in an official speech in addition to her annual Christmas talks during her 68-year reign as Queen of England. So yes, it’s a big problem, she needed to speak now.
Another interesting hint … according to the deadline, the Queen’s speech was filmed with only one cameraman in the room (fully dressed in protective clothing) while the rest of the crew watched and tinkered parts of the building.
Given that Prince Charles himself was hit by COVID-19, precautions regarding QE2 are probably a good idea. She is right in the age group, where corona viruses can hit hard.
