More than 24 million people watched Queen Elizabeth II offering support to Great Britain and beyond with a special TV broadcast on Sunday April 5.

She assured her ‘coronavirus locked-down nation’ that it would rise to the challenge and overcome the outbreak. The vibrant 93-year-old monarch acknowledged the difficulties that many families are experiencing because of the Covid-19 crisis.

There are more than 170,000 people in the UK who have contracted the virus and it has caused more than 26,000 deaths in the last few weeks. And this does not include those who have died in residential care homes. The Queen spoke of the need for resolve at this time of crisis.

She said: “While we have faced challenges before, this one is different. This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavour, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal.”
