During her speech, the Queen referenced her first radio broadcast from 1940, when she (then 14) comforted children being separated from their families due to bombings by Germany during WWII.

"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."


She also told listeners to take comfort in the thought that the quarantine will be over someday soon.

"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."


People all over the world were inspired by the Queen's touching sentiments.

The Queen ended her speech by giving all who were watching a glimpse of the bright future.
