A Christian royal correspondent has said the Queen recording a message for the nation during the coronavirus pandemic is unprecedented.
The Queen will use her address to the nation to recognise the pain felt by many families living through this "time of disruption" caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
In her televised message, which will be broadcast on Sunday evening, the head of state will also personally thank frontline NHS staff, care workers and others carrying out essential roles for their efforts.
The broadcast will be a deeply personal message reflecting her experience in other difficult times.
Royal correspondent for the Shropshire Shirley Tart told Premier this speech signifies the times we're living in.
"It's important. This is something that rocks our very foundations in a way. And I think that's why people, and the government will heed what she's saying.
"I think the speech will give people a real boost. I think it will make a difference."
With hundreds of thousands answering the call for NHS volunteers and others supporting vulnerable people in their communities, the monarch will say she hopes in the future everyone will be able to feel "pride" in how they rose to the situation.
The message has been highly anticipated and comes as the country braces itself each day for the death toll from the virus, which has forced much of normal life to be suspended.
The latest figures from the Department of Health showed the number of coronavirus-related hospital deaths stood at 4,313 as of 5pm on Friday, up from 3,605 the day before.
The televised address will be a rare event, with the head of state only making three previous appearances during troubled times.
