Queen Elizabeth’s Christmas Address Talks About Meghan Markle, Importance Of Family


Queen Elizabeth’s annual Christmas address touched on her growing family and the importance of respect. 

Her Majesty spoke about celebrating her son Prince Charles’ 70th birthday, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding, Princess Eugenie’s nuptials to Jack Brooksbank, the birth of Prince Louis and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s pregnancy announcement

“It’s been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies — and another child expected soon. It helps to keep a grandmother well occupied,” the Queen said in her annual speech.

“Even with the most deeply held differences, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding,” the queen said. Many interpreted the line as a veiled nod to Brexit divisiveness. 

The queen’s annual speech is always pre-recorded. She spent the Christmas holiday as she always does, at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk, surrounded by her family.

The queen, Prince Charles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended church together on Christmas morning at St. Mary Magdalene Church.

Prince Philip was notably absent from the church service, though Reuters reported that the royal was “just spending the day privately.” The Duke of Edinburgh retired from his royal duties in the fall of 2017 at the age of 95.
