The Queen’s speech about coronavirus was her ‘finest moment’


Her Majesty the Queen’s address to the country has been deemed “her finest moment” by Piers Morgan.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 55, praised the queen on Twitter shortly after the 93-year-old monarch spoke to the United Kingdom.

On Sunday evening, Queen Elizabeth II talked to millions of viewers at home about the ongoing concerns about coronavirus. Prior to the speech, Piers tweeted: “This is the Queen’s most important moment tonight. Nothing since World War 2 has impacted Britain like this devastating coronavirus crisis.

“Her Majesty’s words will be a huge comfort to many people. We are so lucky to have her.”

Susanna Reid, his co-host, shared his views, writing, “Wonderful address by the Queen – exactly the words we needed. We’ll meet again.”

Her Majesty, 93, personally thanked frontline NHS employees, care workers, and others performing vital jobs in her address.


She said: “I am speaking to you at what I know is an increasingly challenging time.

“A time of disruption in the life of our country: a disruption that has brought grief to some, financial difficulties to many, and enormous changes to the daily lives of us all.

“I want to thank everyone on the NHS front line, as well as care workers and those carrying out essential roles, who selflessly continue their day-to-day duties outside the home in support of us all.

“I am sure the nation will join me in assuring you that what you do is appreciated and every hour of your hard work brings us closer to a return to more normal times.”

During the momentous occasion, the Queen said, “We will succeed – and that success will belong to every one of us.

“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.”

Throughout the UK, children have painted and drawn rainbows and hung them in their windows to lift the emotions of passers-by, and thousands have participated in the Clap for Carers tributes.

In the very emotional speech, she explained how the situation reminded her of her first broadcast in 1940, when she talked from Windsor to children who had been evacuated from their homes.

The queen went on, “It reminds me of the very first broadcast I made, in 1940, helped by my sister.”

“We, as children, spoke from here at Windsor to children who had been evacuated from their homes and sent away for their own safety.

“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.”

“It was quite touching and heartwarming,” Mr Little remarked of her reference to rainbows.

He added: “She also talks about the speech she gave 80 years ago with Princess Margaret in October 1940 in the same Windsor Castle setting.

“It’s quite remarkable that it should be necessary to speak about a world in turmoil 80 years later.

“It appears to be deeply personal but it is what you would expect her to say as head of state and head of the Commonwealth.”

Piers then attacked an American follower, writer Molly Mulshine, who claimed she “didn’t get it,” saying, “You’re American, you don’t need to ‘get it’. She’s OUR Queen and tonight she spoke for every one of us in Britain. And we love her for it.”

Her speech came only hours after Britain’s coronavirus death toll jumped 621 in a single day to 4,934, including 29 individuals with no underlying medical problems.
