Every year, Queen Elizabeth II delivers a speech that is broadcast all over the UK on Christmas Day, and this year's was all about the importance of family! On Tuesday, the 92-year-old British monarch began her speech with a sweet nod to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. "It has been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies, and another child expected soon," she said, referencing Harry and Princess Eugenie's weddings, Prince Louis and Lena Tindall's births, and Meghan's pregnancy. "It helps to keep a grandmother well occupied."
She also referenced Prince Charles's 70th birthday, which took place last month. "We have had other celebrations too, including the 70th birthday of the Prince of Wales," she said. "Through the many changes I have seen over the years, faith, family and friendship have been not only a constant for me but a source of personal comfort and reassurance. 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 a greater understanding."
That same day, the queen attended morning service at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham with the rest of the royal family. Prince William, Harry, Meghan, and Kate Middleton were all front and centre, and Kate and Meghan seemingly put those pesky feud rumours to rest as they shared a touching moment outside. There's nothing quite like the holidays to bring families together!
