Yesterday, I read the transcript of the address to the UK by Queen Elizabeth II, but today a friend sent me a link to the video, which the NY Times has graciously allowed non-subscribers to watch for free (after watching an ad).

I’ve lived in England, and (perhaps despite that) I’ve never been much for the British monarchy, but this is one hell of a good address. It brought tears to my eyes. It is fairly short. I highly recommend you watch it.
