Royal family and more, paid respects to Dame Vera Lynn.

The Queen, Prince Charles and Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney are among those who have paid respects to Dame Vera Lynn, said BBC.


She died at the age of 103.

Forces’ Sweetheart Dame Vera was best known for her wartime anthem We’ll Meet Again, said the report.

She songs helped raise morale in World War II.

Buckingham Palace said the Queen will send private condolences to the singer’s family.

Sir Paul in a tweet described Dame Vera as “strong and inspiring”.

“I am so sad to hear of her passing but at the same time so glad to have met her and experienced first-hand her warm, fun-loving personality. Her voice will sing in my heart forever,” he wrote on Twitter.

The Queen previously echoed Dame Vera’s famous WW2 anthem during a speech to Britons. This is for those who were separated from families and friends during the coronavirus lockdown in April.

She told the nation: “We will be with our friends again, we will be with our families again, we will meet again.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Dame Vera’s “charm and magical voice entranced and uplifted our country in some of our darkest hours”.

WW2 veteran Captain Sir Tom Moore, also gave his two cents on her death.

Moore said: “I really thought Vera Lynn would live longer, she’s been speaking so well on TV recently.

“She had a huge impact on me in Burma and remained important to me throughout my life.

” Moore was recently knighted after raising more than £32m for NHS charities during the coronavirus lockdown.

Moore, who just turn 100, and Lynn were contemporaries.

Dame Vera’s daughter, Virginia Lewis-Jones, recalled her “wonderful life and fantastic career”.

“We as a family are very sad that my mother is no longer with us and this program is a tribute to her wonderful life and her fantastic career,” she said.

“She touched so many people’s lives and we are very, very proud of her,” she added.
