Royal Fans Detect Queen’s Meaningful Tribute to Late Husband Prince Philip
This year has been a rather trying one for the 95-year-old Monarch, who lost her husband of 73 years in April. While there were joyful moments, especially the times when Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughters, Zara and Eugenie, both welcomed baby boys, it’s been mostly challenging for Her Majesty.
In October, the Queen stayed overnight at a London hospital for the first time in years. She also sprained her back after being pictured walking with a stick.
Queen to Give Her Most Emotional Christmas Message Yet
The Queen’s annual Christmas message has become one of the highlights of the Monarch’s year and millions of people from around the world tune in to listen.
Keen royal fans are predicting that the Queen’s Christmas message this year will be very emotional and more personal than the others she’s done in her near 70-year reign.
The Queen will be wearing a treasured brooch as a touching tribute to her husband, whom she has described as “her rock” over the years. She was spotted wearing the elegant jewelry during her honeymoon at Broadlands country house, Hampshire, where she sat beside her husband for the beautiful snap. The picture marked a major wedding anniversary.
Her Majesty first put on the sapphire chrysanthemum jewelry during her honeymoon in 1947, before spotting it again at their 60th wedding anniversary.
The framed photo of the Diamond Wedding couple, which was taken in 2007, appears on a desk beside the Queen in the pre-recorded address to the nation.
Unlike previous years when she is surrounded by framed portraits of her family, the picture will be the sole one featured in the video message.
Photograph Released by Palace Ahead of Queen Elizabeth’s Poignant Christmas Message
Buckingham Palace released a photograph ahead of the broadcast. It shows the Monarch wearing an embossed wool Christmas red shift dress, by British designer Angela Kelly, as a nod to the season.
She is seen sitting behind a desk in the White Drawing Room at Windsor, where she is forced to spend Christmas once again as a result of the global pandemic.
The 2021 Christmas Broadcast will be available at 3 p.m. on BBC One, ITV, and BBC Radio 4.
