KIRSTY Young fought back tears as she gave a closing speech as the BBC’s live coverage of the Queen’s funeral came to an end.
Following the committal service she wrapped up the coverage with a powerful tribute to the Queen.
She told viewers: “It’s often felt in recent days that a veil of sorrow has covered the nation, but the Queen’s funeral has surely exemplified her reign.
“She united us in one final act of togetherness, unifying the United Kingdom and the world beyond in respect, ceremony and significance.
“As a very young woman, she famously said, her whole life whether it be long or short would be devoted to our service. 出色地, never was a person truer to their word.”
Holding back tears, 她继续: “And today, we have come together, many of us with tears in our eyes, but all of us with an abiding warmth in our hearts for all that she gave.”
The presenter added: “Just over three months ago the world, and a certain little bear said, ‘Thank you, for everything’ and the Queen looked as though she thoroughly enjoyed the occasion.”
Finishing the closing speech, Kirsty said: “She made history, she was history. Queen Elizabeth II is gone. But she will surely never be forgotten.”
Viewers used 社交媒体 to praise the presenter’s words.
“What a closing speech by Kirsty Young, she did well to hold it together,” wrote one.
而另一个补充: “天哪 – Kirsty Young – she gets it. Wonderful,” while a third added: “Kirsty Young you have just brought a tear to my eye. Outstanding closing words.”
