Britons are planning a national singalong on May 8th to Vera Lynn’s wartime classic We’ll Meet Again. Before that, Queen Elizabeth will make a televised address to mark the day the Nazis surrendered, bringing an end to World War II in Europe. Residents are also encouraged to hold 1940’s style tea parties to mark the 75th anniversary of VE day.
Senior Royals and Prime Minister Boris Johnson will take part in a series of video calls with veterans. The original plans for street parties and veterans parades were cancelled because of COVID-19.
