The Queen's coronavirus message to the nation is illuminated across the 146ft-wide billboard at Piccadilly Circus as Britain's lockdown continues
  • Photo of the monarch appeared alongside quotes from her Sunday night broadcast on the coronavirus crisis
  • The words read 'We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return'
  • Today, number of UK coronavirus deaths hit 7,095 with 55,242 confirmed cases, as PM remained in hospital
A gigantic image of the Queen delivering her address to the nation has been displayed on London's famous Piccadilly Lights.
The 146-feet photo of the monarch appeared alongside quotes from her Sunday night broadcast on the coronavirus crisis.
The words read 'We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return', before scrolling on to: 'I want to thank everyone on the NHS front line, as well as care workers and those carrying out essential roles.'
A third message contained her quotes referring Vera Lynn's famous WWII song: 'We will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.'  
Today, the number of UK coronavirus deaths hit 7,095 with 55,242 confirmed cases, as Boris Johnson remained in intensive care and a proposed review of the lockdown next week was postponed.

Usually one of London's busiest tourist hotspots, the streets surrounding Piccadilly Circus were quiet when the Queen's image appeared, as the nation remains in lockdown.
Just a few cars, red double-decker buses and a couple of cyclists and pedestrians were in the vicinity of the 780 square metre LED digital screen, near the so-called 'Eros' statue.
An estimated 100 million people usually pass through Piccadilly Circus every year, making it one of the world's prime advertising spaces.
The Circus's large adverts have been a famous feature of central London since 1908 when they hosted the first Perrier advertisement which was created with lightbulbs.
In her rare televised address, the monarch warned the country 'may have more still to endure'.
But the head of state said if we 'remain united and resolute' in the face of the coronavirus outbreak 'we will overcome it'.
She echoed the words of Forces' sweetheart Dame Vera Lynn's Second World War song, saying: 'We will meet again.'
