The Queen to address the nation

Her Majesty the Queen during her visit to HMS Ocean in Devonport today. PLYMOUTH based Helicopter Carrier, HMS Ocean, has welcomed Her Majesty The Queen to preside over a ceremony to rededicate the Ship. The Rededication Ceremony, held at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Devonport, took place to officially welcome the vessel back in to the Fleet after a multi-million pound refit. During her time with the Ship, The Queen inspected the 96 man Royal Guard and Queen’s Colour before embarking for a short capability demonstration and meeting members of the Ship’s Company and their families.

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.
