Her Majesty the Queen isn’t the only one praising the country’s resilience and humour in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. The Twitterverse has exploded with reasons why us Brits are proud to be British.
From praising our NHS health heroes to random acts of kindness, here’s our pick of the top tweets that’ll lift your spirits.
Some may even bring a little happy or proud tear to your eye.
With huge airlines such as British Airways temporarily shutting up shop, staff have found other ways to keep themselves occupied.
From taking on new jobs to raising the spirits of those hard at work for the NHS, travel workers are certainly making us proud.

My best friend is a doctor at the Whittington Hospital in north London. She said staff were served breakfast this morning by British Airways stewards in full uniform

Amazing from Tesco:
-giving their staff 15% discount for 4 weeks as a token of appreciation
-building a pop up shop at the new Nightingale hospital to give 24hr access for food to NHS staff
-providing 1M free meal parcels to NHS workers
Leading the way for all Supermarkets 👏👏

One of my brothers is working at #NightingaleHospital today. The other one continued his job of creating new life until last week, then immediately signed up to help when furloughed. I’m so bloody proud.
