“While we have faced challenges before, this one is different. This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavour, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal.”


“We will succeed – and that success will belong to every one of us,” she said.
“We, as children, spoke from here at Windsor to children who had been evacuated from their homes and sent away for their own safety.
Tell u“Today, once again, many will feel a painful sense of separation from their loved ones. But now, as then, we know, deep down, that it is the right thing to do.”
“We should take comfort that, while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.”

“THE QUEEN IS THE BEST JUDGE OF WHEN TO TALK TO THE COUNTRY AND WE ABSOLUTELY AGREE THAT NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME,” the official said.

 “We have asked the country to make huge sacrifices and life is very difficult at the moment for a great many people. Hearing from Her Majesty the Queen at this time is an important way of helping to lift the nation’s spirits.”
The Queen, 94 this month and in good health, recorded her message at Windsor Castle, where she and the Duke of Edinburgh, 98, are staying for the foreseeable future.
The broadcast was filmed in extraordinary circumstances, with only one cameraman, wearing personal protective equipment, allowed into the White Drawing Room with the monarch to mitigate the risks to both her and others.
In a rare and deeply personal address to the nation and Commonwealth, she acknowledged the “pain already felt by those who have lost loved ones”.
She praised NHS frontline workers, care workers and those carrying out other essential roles “who selflessly continue their day-to-day duties outside the home in support of all of us”. She told them: “Every hour of your hard work brings us closer to a return to more normal times.”
She also thanked those who were staying at home, “thereby helping to protect the vulnerable”. In a rallying call, she added: “Together we are tackling this disease, and I want to reassure you that if we remain united and resolute, then we will overcome it.”
Her hope, she said, was that those in years to come would look back and say that this generation of Britons “were as strong as any”. She added: “The pride in who we are is not part of our past, it defines our present and our future.”
It was, she said, an increasingly challenging time of disruption, “a disruption that has brought grief to some, financial difficulties to many and enormous changes to the daily lives of us all”.
Her message incorporated footage of NHS frontline staff, workers making deliveries, the armed forces constructing the NHS Nightingale London field hospital and video of the #clapforourcarers moments around the country, along with pictures of rainbows drawn by children.
“The moments when the United Kingdom has come together to applaud its care and essential workers will be remembered as an expression of our national spirit, and its symbol will be the rainbows drawn by children,” she said.
The message made no direct mention of the Queen’s own family’s experience of coronavirus: Prince Charles contracted and recovered from the illness.
Joe Little, the managing editor of Majesty magazine, said the Queen would have wanted the focus to be on people such as the carers and key workers. “I think the message was more as monarch rather than as mother,” he said.
Labour’s new leader, Sir Keir Starmer, tweeted: “The Queen speaks for the whole country and our determination to defeat coronavirus.”
Apart from her Christmas message, it is rare for the monarch to make a special televised address. She has previously done so at the time of the Gulf war in 1991, on the eve of the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1997, on the death of the Queen Mother in 2002, and on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee in 2012.


COMMENTAIRE DE DIVERCITY
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

Un discours Churchillien, sobre, matter of fact mais puissant prononcé par une reine de fer presque centenaire avec un talent de tragédienne shakespearienne mais sans emphase . Philippe de Belgique, prenez-en de la graine.
