In a statement released by Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy, the Queen sent her thanks to those putting the service of others before themselves.

“As people across New Zealand and the Commonwealth are experiencing unprecedented changes to their lives, concerns for family and friends, and financial uncertainty, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

“I send my enduring thanks to those who continue to put the service of others above themselves, whether by staying at home, providing essential services, or by caring for the most vulnerable.

“It is through this sense of community, dedication and faith, that I am confident New Zealanders will rise to the challenge and overcome.

“Kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui.”

The Queen yesterday made a rare special address, broadcast on TV, radio and social media. It was filmed by a sole camera operator in full protective gear, with all other technical staff in another room.
