  • Queen Elizabeth II
    Posted on: Tuesday, December 22, 2015

    On Christmas Day, December 25, millions of viewers around the world will tune in to see The Queen's Christmas Message. Each year Queen Elizabeth addresses her subjects in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, presenting highlights of the royal year and is one of the few times that the monarch speaks from her heart, directly to the people, without consulting with her advisors. In "Dear Old Blighty" families plan Christmas Day around the speech, generally gathering around the television to see the Queen at 3:00 PM (GMT) before enjoying Christmas dinner. Even if you're only mildly interested in the royal family, this year is one you may not want to miss as the Queen will certainly address her new status as the longest reigning monarch in British history.
