The Queen expressed thanks for key workers in her message, noting "every hour" of work "brings us closer to a return to more normal times".
The monarch shared: "While we have faced challenges before, this one is different.
"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. We will succeed - and that success will belong to every one of us.
"We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again."
It was the fifth time the Queen addressed the nation outside of her annual Christmas Day speech.
