As UK continues to battle coronavirus pandemic, its citizens honoured the 75th Victory in Europe Day which marked the end World War II on the continent.
Let's take a look:
Queen Elizabeth led tributes to veterans of World War Two recalling the "never give up, never despair" message of VE Day.
In a rare televised address that brought together the themes of wartime and the coronavirus, the 94-year-old monarch said those who had served during the conflict with Nazi Germany would admire how their descendants were coping with the lockdown imposed to curb the spread of the virus.
On a day that should have been filled with parades and street parties, the national commemorations to herald the day when Allied forces accepted Germany's unconditional surrender were scaled back after social gatherings were curbed to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
