Just hours before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big interview with Oprah Winfrey yesterday, Queen Elizabeth II gave a televised address of her own on the BBC. The queen called for “unity” amid the coronavirus pandemic and celebrated the Commonwealth’s “selfless dedication” and “courage,” especially by those on the frontlines.

“The testing times experienced by so many have led to a deeper appreciation of the mutual support and spiritual sustenance we enjoy by being connected to others,” she said. “Looking forward, relationships with others across the Commonwealth will remain important, as we strive to deliver a common future that is sustainable and more secure, so that the nations and neighborhoods in which we live, wherever they are located, become healthier and happier places for us all.”

The address also featured appearances by Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince William, and Kate Middleton.
