Queen tells UK “we will succeed” against Coronavirus in rare address to the nation

The Queen has given a rare televised national broadcast on the coronavirus.

It’s being described as a ‘deeply personal message’ about the scale of Covid-19 crisis facing the nation, and the response shown by the public and key workers.

In her powerful address – one of four formal statements she’s given in her 68-year-reign – she said the nation may “have more still to endure” but “we will overcome it”.
