The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral on September 8, after 70 years on the throne, making her Britain’s longest reigning monarch.

Speaking about the sad death, Lizzie said: “It hit me harder than I thought. My youngest was with me and he was in tears as well.

“I was just so pleased to see all the young people lining the streets and I think it has really affected some more than they thought it would.

“Or maybe it has just reminded people of a loss in their own family because she was really the nation’s granny. Not many know a life without her.”

Lizzie then recalled the Queen’s influence on her during the Covid pandemic with her speeches.

She expressed: “She was an icon really and helped us all in lots of ways and for me, it was her Covid pandemic speeches.

“My son and I watched it and you know her words, I don’t know made you feel less alone as we were all shut away from our family and friends at the time.

“There isn’t anyone I have spoken to that she didn’t have a significant effect on.

“She helped me to begin to be positive during Covid times. She was just a remarkable lady who always got on with her job, never complained, gorgeous smile and a giant sense of loyalty to her role.”

Around 24 million TV viewers sat to watch the Queen’s broadcast, making it the second most-watched broadcast this year.

The first was Boris Johnson’s coronavirus restrictions announcement which was watched by 27 million people.

The Queen concluded her speech with the pivotal line: “We will be with our friends again, we will be with our families again, we will meet again.”

This was a direct reference to Dame Vera Lynn’s war anthem titled We’ll Meet Again.

Speaking from Windsor Castle, the Queen said the pandemic was a “different” challenge compared to what the nation had faced before”.

She then thanked people for following government rules to stay inside and paid tribute to key workers for their efforts.
