The Queen finished her message to the nation with the title words of the song, first released in 1939 by Dame Vera, who is now 103.

Katherine said: “As Dame Vera, herself has said, while the lyrics of ‘We’ll Meet Again’ take us back to the time of WW2, the sentiment feels appropriate and meaningful today and relevant to the current crisis.

“It is a song of hope and Dame Vera and I sing this in honour of (and in aid of) our superhero NHS workers and their families. They are putting themselves at risk to ensure we will meet our dearest again.”

Katherine appeared on Good Morning Britain to confirm the re-release of the track on Saturday, April 11 and that the proceeds from sales would go to the charity, NHS Charities Together which helps health workers with everyday expenses and essential support.
