    Captain Sir Tom Moore: Queen leads tributes to ‘inspiration for the nation’

    The Queen has led tributes to Captain Sir Tom Moore, who has died with coronavirus.

    The 100-year-old, who raised almost £33m for NHS charities, died at Bedford Hospital on Tuesday, two days after being admitted.

    The Queen is to send her own private message of condolence to the family, Buckingham Palace said.

    “Her Majesty very much enjoyed meeting Captain Sir Tom and his family at Windsor last year,” said a statement.

    “Her thoughts, and those of the Royal Family, are with them, recognising the inspiration he provided for the whole nation and others across the world.”

    Capt Sir Tom was awarded a knighthood from the Queen in the summer at Windsor Castle – an honour he said left him “absolutely overawed”.

    As well as Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour leader Keir Starmer, celebrities and public figures have been quick to pay their respects to the veteran fundraiser.

    Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby called him “the very best of us”.

    Michael Ball, who sang with Capt Sir Tom on the number one single You’ll Never Walk Alone, paid tribute to “a hero and a fighter to the very end”.
