The Queen's New Year's Eve message promises 'better days will return' when Brits will be able to see their families

THE QUEEN has assured Brits that "better days will return" in a heartwarming New Year's Eve message.

In statement of hope posted to Instagram today, the monarch urged Brits to stand firm – and promised "we will meet again" with loved ones once the Covid-19 pandemic is over.

The post signed off by Her Majesty The Queen, read: “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."

"Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year," it added.

It comes as all of England was plunged into Tiered coronavirus restrictions before and during Christmas week.

And for many the New Year will begin while living under either Tier 3 or Tier 4 restrictions.

It has been an unusual year for the Queen herself, who has also faced a number of challenges during a testing 12 months.

Her majesty got to grips with Zoom to talk to other members of the Royal Family and for the first time ever spent Christmas at Windsor and not Sandringham.

But despite her own challenges she remained a beacon of strength throughout the pandemic – evident when she knighted heroic Sir Tom Moore in a socially distanced ceremony.

The news follows the Queen's tear-jerking Christmas Day message, in which she declared that the pandemic had brought the UK closer together.

Her Maj said she understood that what many people really wanted for Christmas was “a simple hug or a squeeze of the hand”.

And during the speech, she proudly displayed a single image of Prince Philip as she made her Christmas Day speech in a sweet tribute after spending nine months in lockdown together.

The Monarch's desk featured one framed photograph of her husband of 73 years.
