• Queen Elizabeth II praised for her speech about the coronavirus outbreak
  • Prince William also addressed the COVID-19 pandemic in a separate speech
  • Prince William wanted to return as ambulance pilot to help fight the coronavirus outbreak

Queen Elizabeth II addressed the coronavirus outbreak in a televised speech and netizens praised her for it.

On Sunday, the British monarch released a pre-taped speech recorded at Windsor Castle in England, to address the COVID-19 pandemic. In her speech, Her Majesty recognized the healthcare workers’ efforts and assured the people that the fight against coronavirus will eventually be over and she said, “We will succeed.”

Twitter users were very happy with the Queen’s effort to openly speak about the pandemic. Several praised the monarch’s leadership while some netizens from other countries expressed their desire to hear the same assurance from their leaders.

“Well done HMTQ. Thank you for speaking from the heart. Your speech today was very moving and it was needed. Thank you very much,” @TeamCambridge2 commented.

“Thank you, your majesty for your comforting words,” @prince_scarf added.

“I’m in the US. We need a voice like this to speak to us,” @LarryPerson wrote.

In her speech, Prince William and Prince Harry’s grandmother also reminded the people that the fight against COVID-19 is a worldwide battle. Brits are not the only ones who are facing the deadly virus.

“While we have faced challenges before, this one is different. This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavor, 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,” Queen Elizabeth said.

“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.”

Last month, the Duke of Cambridge also spoke about coronavirus. In his statement, the future king recognized the people of the U.K.’s “unique ability to pull together” whenever adversity strikes.

An insider also claimed that Kate Middleton’s husband wanted to return as ambulance pilot to “do his bit” and help the people fight against coronavirus. However, doing so was impossible because of his royal duties especially since he is the only visible royal right now beause the Queen and Prince Charles are isolating in Windsor Castle.
