According to NBC, the 93-year-old monarch spoke to the nation through a pre-recorded video, published on Instagram, stating:

"This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavour, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal."

The other times the monarch spoke to the nation came after her mother's death in 2002 and during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee message in June 2012.

The Queen then went on to admit that she knew of the suffering that many families have endured due to the COVID-19 crisis, that has already affected more than 47,806 people in the U.K. and killed at least 4,934 of them.

The Queen also made it known that she was appreciative of those at the United Kingdom's National Health Service who were at the forefront of combating the disease.

Just before she told her people that they would "succeed," the 93-year-old noted that giving the address reminded her of the speech she made during World War II.

With that in mind, BBC recalled all the other times that the Queen addressed the people of the U.K. publicly. One of those times included her September 1997 address following the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
