Sunday, Queen Elizabeth gave a rare emotional address, promising “better days will return.”
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 hope in the years to come, everyone will be able to take pride in how they responded to this challenge. And those who come after us will say that the Britons of this generation were as strong as any.
Per ABCNews, the speech came at the end of a weekend that saw many people across the country violating government requests to stay at home, despite the sunny weather.
Parks and squares across London and other major cities saw hundreds of people gathering to take advantage of the weather.
