The Queen to address the nation

The Queen will address the nation tomorrow (Sunday) to “reassure and rally” the country during the coronavirus pandemic.

It is the first speech made by a monarch during a time of national crisis since World War Two.

The Queen recorded the address at Windsor Castle where she is in self-isolation.

It’s thought the Queen will pay tribute to beleaguered NHS staff and front-line workers.

She will also comment on how Covid-19 has affected not only Britain but the Commonwealth.

The address is to be broadcast on radio and television at 20.00.
