Queen Elizabeth II to ask UK for ‘self-discipline’ in coronavirus speech


Speaking in a pre-recorded video filmed at Windsor Castle, the Queen will thank front-line staff at the UK National Health Service, carers and others playing key roles.

“I’m talking to you about what I know to be an increasingly difficult time. A period of disruption in the life of our country: a disruption that has caused grief to some, financial hardship to many and huge changes in our daily lives. “, She will say, according to a press release from Buckingham Palace.

“I hope that in the years to come, everyone can be proud of how they have responded to this challenge. And those who will succeed us will say that the British of this generation were as strong as all. That the attributes of self-discipline, calm, good humor and sympathy still characterize this country. “

She will also show recognition of the pain already felt by families and thank those who follow official advice for staying at home to protect the vulnerable, the statement said.

The Queen rarely makes national addresses, usually speaking to the country only at Christmas and when a new Parliament was installed.
