The prerecorded message will be released on Sunday, March 7, at 5 pm local time. It is intended to mark the arrival of Commonwealth Day, which falls on March 8. Commonwealth Day celebrates the 15 nations that are part of the British Commonwealth.
Buckingham Palace said in a statement, "In Her Majesty's annual Commonwealth Day message, the Queen will pay tribute to the way in which communities across the family of nations have come together in response to the pandemic."
The address was taped at Windsor Castle, the very place where the Sussexes tied the knot.
