Queen Elizabeth II: Royal fans gush over ‘thoughtful’ new message – ‘Long live the Queen!’
Meghan Markle and Harry 'blindsided' Queen with exit says expert
Queen Elizabeth II, 94, has been a symbol of stability for Britons throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and many have sought comfort in the speeches she has delivered since the health crisis began. On Monday, the Queen paid tribute to BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour programme as it celebrated 75 years on the air.
The message was shared by the Royal Family’s official account on Twitter in a message which read: “Her Majesty The Queen has sent a message to mark the 75th year of @BBCWomansHour.”
The Queen’s message read: “As you celebrate your 75th year, it is with great pleasure that I send my best wishes to the listeners and all those associated with Woman’s Hour.
“During this time, you have witnessed and played a significant part in the evolving role of women across society, both here and around the world.
“In this notable anniversary year, I wish you continued success in your important work as a friend, guide and advocate to women everywhere.”

Fans reacted to the Queen’s tribute on Twitter with many lumping praise on the monarch.
One wrote: “75th year, great celebration, a very special engagement by our delightful and thoughtful Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.”
Another gushed: “Extraordinary, very inspiring, a wonderful engagement by her Majesty our thoughtful Queen Elizabeth II.”
A third reacted: “Her Majesty made a vow in 1952 to always be devoted to her duties. She has fulfilled that vow and still does today.”
While a fourth joked she should replace Prime Minister Boris Johnson “during this time of crisis.”
Another fan put: “Long live the queen well done woman’s hour!”
The Queen remains at Windsor Castle where she and Prince Philip, 99, spent Christmas.
The royal couple are expected to remain at their Windsor base until the pandemic subsides.

Windsor is currently under Tier 4 restrictions which means the Queen and the Duke will be abiding by the Government’s stay at home advice.
Ahead of Christmas the Queen stepped out for a special royal engagement in the grounds of Windsor.
She was joined by senior royals including Prince William, Prince Charles and their wives to thank local keyworkers and volunteers.
The Queen has managed to keep up with royal duties by carrying out virtual engagements since last March.
However, she is expected to hand increasingly more responsibilities to younger members of the Firm going forward.
Since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped down from royal duties last year, the Queen’s youngest son Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex have stepped up to help fill the gap.
The Queen and Prince Philip are among the high-risk group for Covid-19 and are expected to be among elderly Britons to receive the vaccine soon.
However, Buckingham Palace has denied reports they will be given preferential treatment because of their royal status.
