Queen Elizabeth just took a rare walk down memory lane during this brand-new speech that aired on BBC.
Today, the 94-year-old monarch addressed the world, just as her father King George VI did three-quarters of a century ago on May 8, 1945. The speech honored the 75th anniversary of VE Day (or Victory in Europe Day), which marks Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender.
During the broadcast, Queen Elizabeth recalled never-before-heard details from that day. She also encouraged viewers to remember the VE Day message: “Never give up, never despair.”
