Easter weekend is usually filled with large gatherings at church, easter egg hunts and families coming together, but coronavirus has changed the traditional celebrations as people continue to isolate themselves indoors. Now, for the first time in her years as Queen of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II has released an Easter message, sending words of hope throughout the world.
“This year, Easter will be different for many of us, but by keeping apart, we keep others safe. But Easter isn’t cancelled. Indeed, we need Easter as much as ever,” the Queen said in her message. “We know that coronavirus will not overcome us. 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.”
The Royal Family tweeted out Queen Elizabeth’s message Saturday, saying, “The Queen speaks of light overcoming darkness, and the hope that Easter symbolises. “
