Queen Elizabeth II: "May the living flame of the Easter hope be a steady guide as we face the future.”

Queen Elizabeth II released what was believed to have been her first Easter address, in which she said that the religious holiday was a time of “light overcoming darkness.”

“This year, Easter will be different for many of us, but by keeping apart we keep others safe,” she said in the audio recording. “Easter isn’t canceled. Indeed, we need Easter as much as ever.”

“We know that coronavirus will not overcome us,” the queen said. “As dark as death can be, particularly for those suffering with grief, light and life are greater. May the living flame of the Easter hope be a steady guide as we face the future.”
