“Wishing Her Majesty and all her family a very Happy New Year.”

The Queen was praised earlier this year when she gave a national address during the first peak of coronavirus.

Speaking from Windsor Castle, she said: “While we have faced challenges before, this one is different.

“This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavour, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal.

“We will succeed – and that success will belong to every one of us.”
