Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II to acknowledge’bumpy’ year in Christmas.
The Queen did not specify whether she was referring to the political turmoil over Brexit that dominated 2019 at the united kingdom,
or if she had been considering personal events between her family,
or even both.The Queen’s Christmas broadcast was filmed in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle this year. Her husband,
Prince Philip, was discharged by a London hospital after a four-night
stay for an undisclosed illness on Tuesday morning.
The Duke of Edinburgh had been confessed to King Edward VII’s
hospital for”monitoring and treatment” on the help of his doctor.
Before this year, Philip was involved in a car crash near
the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
While the duke appeared prevailed, another driver suffered
cuts to her knee and a broken wrist was sustained by a passenger.
In the aftermath of this crash, Philip, then-97, gave up his permit. The duke wasn’t the sole senior British royal to make headlines this season.
Back in September, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened about the struggles the couple have confronted under intense media scrutiny
while traveling in southern Africa. The financier expired by suicide that was apparent in August.
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II to acknowledge’bumpy’ year in Christmas — that will be aired on Wednesday at 3 p.m. (10 a.m. ET) —
was filmed in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.
Seated behind a desk in a royal blue cashmere dress made by Angela Kelly,
the Queen will deal with country surrounded by a choice of photos of her family including a photograph of Prince Charles and his wife Camilla
marking the 50th anniversary of his investiture as Prince of Wales, a family portrait of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
with their three children George, Charlotte and Louis, a photograph of the Duke of Edinburgh from her private collection
as well as a black and white photograph of her father, King George VI, in 1944. The Queen are also wearing the Prince Albert brooch.
It had been given to Queen Victoria by Prince Albert in 1840,
the day before their wedding and has been worn on their wedding day.
It is a sapphire and diamond brooch, set in gold. The Queen may also use her Christmas Day
message to emphasize the 75th anniversary of D-Day landings. “For the 75th anniversary of the decisive battle, in a genuine spirit of reconciliation,
people who had previously been sworn enemies came together
in favorable commemorations either side of the channel,
putting past differences behind them,” she will say. “By being ready to put past differences behind us and move forward together,
we respect the freedom and democracy once won for us so great a price.” Back in June,
the Queen paid tribute on behalf of”the whole free world” to people who died during the Normandy landings in Portsmouth,
southern England with world leaders US President Donald Trump,
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron in attendance.
The 93-year-old monarch will refer to the lifetime of Jesus and also the importance of reconciliation in her pre-recorded message,
saying”small steps taken in faith and in hope can defeat long-held differences and deep-seated divisions to bring stability and understanding”
She will add:”The path, of course, is not always smooth, and may at times this year have felt quite bumpy,
but small steps can make a world of difference.”
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II will admit the last 12 months have felt”quite bumpy” in her Christmas Day broadcast.
