During 2021, the Queen lost her long-term husband, and the Queen’s own health has deteriorated.
British the Queen’s speech, which is strictly part of the Christmas tradition, will be seen again today on Christmas Day. It has been customary to sum up the past year.
Queen Elizabeth II, 95, recorded a speech at Windsor Castle on December 23rd. The speech will be seen as a live broadcast at about 5 pm Finnish time and can be watched here.
About this year the speech is expected to be more personal than before, he says British Broadcasting Corporation BBC.
The year can be thought of as heavy for the queen. She lost her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip, with whom she had several years of marriage 73.
During the speech, a photo taken in 2007 for the couple’s diamond wedding day, which is a replica of the photo below from 1947, is seen on the table.
During 2021, the Queen’s own health has deteriorated. In October, the Queen was ordered to rest, among other things, and was unable to attend the Glasgow Climate Conference for health reasons. The Queen also had to cancel many other jobs.
Of the year Christmas 2021 is the Queen’s second consecutive stay at Windsor Castle. In previous years, he and his family have moved on to Christmas at Sandringham Manor in Norfolk. Staying in Windsor has been justified, among other things, by the corona epidemic.
This year, too, the queen is said to be spending Christmas with her family. However, there is no princess, for example Anne daughter, as her husband was diagnosed with a corona infection this week, says the BBC.
In 2022 marks the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s rise to power.
The royal Christmas speech tradition began in 1932 with a radio speech given by the king George VI, Elizabeth’s grandfather. Elizabeth was six years old at the time.
The transmission time for the speech was set at 3 pm local time, as it was thought that it would gather the largest possible audience from the Commonwealth in different time zones.
