The clip also included an audio clip of the address King George VI, Queen Elizabeth’s father, made on the historic day, as Queen Elisabeth stated:

“I speak to you today at the same hour that my father did exactly 75 years ago.  His message then was a salute to men and women at home and abroad who had sacrificed so much in pursuit of what he rightly called a great deliverance.”

“The war had been a total war. It had affected everyone. No one was immune from its impact.”

Queen Elisabeth II resounded by these words the situation that reflects today’s corona crisis, as billions are isolated in lockdown, a level of impact in ordinary lives not seen since World War II.

The 94-year-old well-respected and much loved monarch, who has given her life for the duty of serving the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, said that those who served during World War II would have been proud to see how the British are coping with the lockdown today.

“When I look at our country today and see what we are willing to do to protect and support one another, I say with pride, that we are still a nation those brave soldiers, sailors and airmen would recognize and admire,” the monarch said.
