Queen Elizabeth Will Give A Rare Televised Address On Sunday About The Coronavirus

Queen Elizabeth will give a televised address about the coronavirus on Sunday evening at 8pm, Buckingham Palace has announced. It's understood to be just the fourth special address in her 68-year reign.

The Queen has already recorded the broadcast to the United Kingdom and Commonwealth, which will be carried on most television channels, as well as on radio and the royal family's social media channels. The palace announcement came as the number of people who have died with coronavirus in the UK rose by 684, the highest daily jump recorded so far. That takes the total number of confirmed dead to 3,605, with 38,168 confirmed cases.

Two weeks ago the Queen issued a written message, praising scientists, medics and emergency staff, and saying the UK was “entering a period of great concern and uncertainty”. The Queen's eldest son, Prince Charles tested positive for the coronavirus, and is now out of self-isolation after displaying mild symptoms.

Chris Ship, royal correspondent for ITV News, said the Queen's only previous special addresses were in 1991 during the Gulf War, 1997 after the death of Princess Diana, and 2002 after the death of the Queen Mother.

1. Samuel L. Jackson should address the U.S.

He could read, "Stay The Fuck At Home".

She will announce that she's going to use her vast, unearned, untaxed wealth to help the poor and the sick. If not, she'd be better off keeping her privileged mouth shut .

4. I thought it was actually very good!

And no elected politician could have made that speech.
