Eugenie thanked her grandmother and Zara said she was “very proud” after the queen urged the country to “stay united and resolute” in a rare television message last night. The speech – which was watched by 23 million people – received wide support, especially from Eugenie and Zara.
And in an interview on Good Morning Britain, Zara added: “Obviously we are very proud and what she said is 100% what the country needed.
“I hope everyone is listening and that we can try to get back to normal and, as we are trying to do today, support our NHS as much as possible. “
The address of the monarch, who was filmed at Windsor Castle where she distances herself from society, is only the fourth of her reign in times of national crisis.
In her speech, the Queen thanked NHS staff, caregivers and others playing key roles.
She said, “I also want to thank those of you who stay at home, helping to protect vulnerable families and saving many families the pain already felt by those who have lost loved ones.
“Together we are fighting this disease, and I want to reassure you that if we stay united and resolute, we will overcome it. “
The head of state turned to his own experiences, describing how in 1940 she gave her first radio show to evacuees after being sent to Windsor Castle with her sister Princess Margaret during the Blitz.

She said, “It reminds me of the very first show I did in 1940, helped by my sister. We children have spoken here to Windsor to children who have been evacuated from their homes and returned for their own safety.
“Today, again, many will experience a painful feeling of separation from their loved ones. But now, as then, we know, deep down, that this is the right thing to do. “
The Queen then referred to the words of Dame Vera Lynn’s song from World War II, We will see each other again, saying, “We should be reassured that even if we have more to endure, better days will come: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we’ll see each other again. “

Prince Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson said the words of the monarch “touched his heart” in an article on social media.
The Duchess of York wrote: “Her Majesty’s words touched my heart and made us never give up. To unite as we did before. Never to forget British humor and remember … We should be reassured that even if we have more to endure, better days will come again: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we’ll see each other again. “
It is then that the queen, who celebrates her 94th birthday this month, takes her social distances in her residence in Berkshire with Prince Philip, 98 years old.
Royal expert Joe Little said the address was a “soothing message in times of crisis”.
Royal author Penny Junor added, “I thought it was superb. It really shows us what the monarchy is.
“During the Second World War during the Blitz, the king and queen chose to stay in London and stood shoulder to shoulder with the British public.
“There is the same feeling of solidarity here. She is with us at this dark hour.
” It’s reassuring. It’s calm, and the wisdom it shows is very inspiring. “
