Her touching message was produced by Sky News from Buckingham Palace‘s White Drawing Room.

For her annual Christmas address, the Queen, 92, wore an ivory silk cocktail dress by Angela Kelly. The monarch also wears the Scarab brooch that her husband, Prince Philip, gave her in 1966.

The design by Andrew Grima features yellow gold, carved ruby, and diamonds. In her speech preview, she noted that “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 greater understanding.”

The Queen also addressed her hopes for the future by referring to Jesus’ teachings and stating:

“I believe his message of peace on earth and goodwill to all is never out of date. It can be heeded by everyone; it’s needed as much as ever.”

In the background, on a table, a black-and-white picture from 1948 showed the Queen when she was still a princess. Included in the image was her husband Prince Philip and Prince Charles when he was a baby.

The queen has delivered the address since 1952. Her annual speech is quite significant because it is her own words, and the only public address she ever makes that isn’t written or edited by the government.

Speaking about the Queen, it’s been revealed that she has specific culinary likes and dislikes. Her Royal Pastry Chefs have shared that has quite the sweet tooth.

It’s been shared that the monarch has a special kind of chocolate cake that she won’t travel without. However, during this time of year, she can’t get enough gingerbread.

The Queen loves Christmas Ginger Bread Biscuits. The recipe for the biscuits can be found on the official Royal website.

It only makes ten cookies, but of course, the recipe can be doubled or tripled according to your needs. The ingredients are measured in terms of weight, not volume.
