What did Sarah Ferguson say?
Alongside a picture of Queen Elizabeth, Sarah wrote, ‘Her Majesty’s words touched my core and inspired us to never give up.
‘To unite as we have before. To never forget the British humour and to remember…
‘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.’
In her speech, the Queen addressed the nation and thanked NHS staff for their hard work.
She said, ‘I want to thank everyone on the NHS frontline, 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.
‘I also want to thank those of you who are staying at home, thereby helping to protect the vulnerable and sparing many families the pain already felt by those who have lost loved ones.
‘I want to reassure you that if we remain united and resolute, then we will overcome it.’
