The Queen has sent out a moving open letter, thanking NHS staff and healthcare workers across the world for their work during the coronavirus pandemic.
The heartfelt message was shared on Her Majesty's official Twitter account Twitter @RoyalFamily on Tuesday morning (7 April) to mark World Health Day.
Her words were sent out on behalf of the whole royal family to "healthcare professionals across the Commonwealth and around the world", the tweet explained.
In the message, which was also shared in full in a second tweet, the Queen says: "On the occasion of World Health Day, I want to thank all those working in the healthcare profession for your selfless commitment and diligence as you undertake vitally important roles to protect and improve the health and well-being of people across the Commonwealth, and around the world."

She continues: "In testing times, we often observe that the best of the human spirit comes to the fore; the dedication to service of countless nurses, midwives and other health workers, in these most challenging circumstances, is an example to us all.
"My family and I send our enduring appreciation and good wishes."
Her Majesty's letter comes just two days after she addressed the nation on Sunday evening (5 April), thanking key workers and offering up a message of hope to us all when she said, "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."
