Queen's message will resonate with nation in lockdown

The comments have come from the managing editor of Majesty magazine

The Queen's message to the nation as part of the VE Day anniversary celebrations will resonate with the public amid the coronavirus pandemic, a royal expert has said.

Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, said of the address: "This is as relevant today as it is for the occasion it's commemorating 75 years ago."

He added: "The Queen is the only surviving head of state to have served during the Second World War and this is an appropriate reaction to something that is so personal to her."

The Queen tells of how the message on VE Day in 1945 was: "Never give up, never despair."

"It very much resonates with the situation we find ourselves in right now," Mr Little said.

"There are some remarkable similarities, where the Queen says 'Never give up, never despair'.
