Queen Will Make VE Day Broadcast “Very Personal” While Sharing “Unique” WWII Memories | Royal | New


The Queen is expected to address the nation to mark the 75th anniversary of Victory Day on May 8. It will air on the BBC at 9 p.m., the same time that his father, King George VI, spoke his radio address to mark victory in Europe. Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams revealed to Express.co.uk that the show could be more “personal” than what the monarch is used to.

He said, “The Queen is the last surviving head of state who served during the war.

“It was with the Auxiliary Territorial Service, and the memories she has, she will share.

“What I think she will do is make it a personal show.

“It is that she will share the personal memories of her exit from the crowd. “

Fitzwilliams continued: “We are going to see the documentary sequence, to see the king and queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with the princesses.

“They appeared several times and Churchill also appeared.

“Many of these images are fascinating and some are known.

“It will make it very personal, and also look back and obviously link the win to what we sincerely hope will be a win now.” “

Victory Day, or Victory Day in Europe, celebrates the formal acceptance of the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany during the Second World War.

To commemorate the anniversary, a three-day international celebration was held from May 8 to 10.

However, due to the pandemic, there will be no street parties, parades or concerts this year.

Many events had to be canceled or moved to the virtual space.

Other members of the royal family are expected to make online appearances to commemorate the special day.
