Last year, the Queen offered her first-ever Easter address, amidst the very first coronavirus lockdown.
” We understand that coronavirus will not conquer us. As dark as death can be– particularly for those suffering with grief– light and life are higher,” she stated.
” May the living flame of the Easter hope be a stable guide as we face the future. I want everyone of all faiths and denominations a blessed Easter.”

Clarence House stated: “The Prince of Wales has tape-recorded the Gerard Manley Hopkins Poem, God’s Grandeur, to show assistance for Christians all over the world at Easter.
” Easter is the most essential celebration of the Christian Church, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the 3rd day after his crucifixion, and Hopkins’s poem captures the hope and delight related to that season.”
The poem begins with the lines: “The world is charged with the splendour of God.
” It will flame out, like shining from shook foil; It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil Crushed.”
