The speech was filmed in a big room to ensure a safe distance between her and the cameraman.

“Those who come after us will say the Britons of this generation were as strong as any.  That the attributes of self-discipline, of quiet good-humored resolve and of fellow-feeling still characterize this country. The pride in who we are is not a part of our past, it defines our present and our future,” at Elizabeth said.
 
“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,” she added.
