Queen’s Christmas message: We can draw on ‘inspiration’ from the achievements of ordinary folks

Queen's Christmas message

The Queen will deliver a cheerful Christmas message on Sunday, saying that we all can draw inspiration from the accomplishments of ordinary individuals in the face of difficult times.

Tribute is paid by her annual Christmas message to the state ’s.

In it Her Majesty will emphasise the topic of inspiration, as she reflects on the accomplishments of Olympic and Paralympic athletes from the united kingdom and across the Commonwealth in the Rio Games last summer.

The Queen, talking in the Regency Room at Buckingham Palace, will notice that, “having discovered abilities they just knew they’d, these athletes are now inspiring others”.

Her Majesty will say: “I frequently draw strength from meeting ordinary people doing extraordinary things: volunteers, carers, community organisers and great neighbours; unsung heroes whose quiet commitment makes them special. They may be an inspiration to those who know them.”

The Queen’s optimistic Prime Minister Theresa May’s Christmas Eve address where she urged the nation to unite following annually of deep divisions over Brexit is followed by Christmas message.

Mrs May urged individuals to “ come together” and help make a success of the decision to depart the European Union.

She said: As we leave the European Union we have to capture a historic opportunity to forge a bold new function for ourselves in the entire world and also to unite our country as we move into the future.

“And, with our international associates, we have to work together to encourage commerce, increase prosperity and face the challenges to peace and security around the world.”

But the PM’s allies emphasised on Friday that Mrs May has the “greatest respect” for the Queen and can share details about her plans for Brexit as soon as they’re decided.

For her Christmas message broadcast the Queen, who as usual is spending Christmas Day at Sandringham House, in Norfolk, was filmed wearing a deep jade, silk cloque dress with strong jade velvet trimming to pockets and the neck , designed by Angela Kelly.

She’s wearing a pearl and diamond brooch which Her Majesty has worn on lots of occasions. The brooch was previously worn many times by HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.

The Queen and Prince Philip delayed their train journey to Sandringham because they both had substantial colds, arriving on Thursday by chopper instead,

The Queen’s message will likely be broadcast at 3pm on Christmas Day on television and radio.

The National Anthem will probably be played by the Massed Bands of the Foot Guards, directed Corps of Army Music, by Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Roberts, Senior Director of Music, Household Division.

The carol will be an excerpt from A Christmas Intrada, called The Wassail Alfred Reed, who expired in 2005.
