Queen Elizabeth II received some special attention and got treated to a Christmas tune during her appearance. The Queen paid a virtual visit for one of the United Kingdom's firms.

Queen Elizabeth II was treated to a classic Christmas song's performance during a recent video call shared on the Royal Family Twitter account. “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” was performed by the accountancy firm’s choir.

“Her Majesty was welcomed by UK chair Bill Michael, who shared the history of @KPMGUK’s support for British businesses over the last 150 years,” the tweet read. KPMG's employees and partners joined the Queen.

The visit was to mark KPMGUK’s 150th anniversary. In the two-part picture slide, five of them appeared on the screengrab of the video call. Besides the Queen, there were two other females and three gentlemen, and they all showed slightly smiley faces.

The 94-year-old wore a blue cardigan with a white shirt in her single photo, which stuck out on the neckline. To complete her look, she accessorized with pearls and matched them with her stud earrings.

As she dressed up simply for the occasion, she experienced technical difficulties during her attendance, according to Hello Magazine. The line to Windsor Castle reportedly went down, which resulted in her image vanishing from the gallery of faces for a second.

When she returned, she beamed at the camera and told those who joined her online that they miraculously disappeared. It must have been quite an experience for the royal matriarch.

However, this was not the Queen’s first encounter partaking in a Zoom video call. In June, she made her first public-facing video call, according to Cosmopolitan.

The Queen dialed from the Oak Room at Windsor Castle for a one on one with Carers Trust to mark Carers Week 2020. It was the first video conference call since her schedule was cleared back in mid-March.

Surely you might be wondering how come the monarch is so hands-on when it comes to video calling. According to Good Morning America, Princess Anne coached her mother on how to make a video call.

Her Royal Highness learned how to get technical while working from home during the lockdown. The technological assistance she received from her daughter was when they participated in a video call meeting to mark the Carers Week.

The royal family members have all been working from home ever since the U.K’s coronavirus stay-at-home order was enforced. Prince Charles, the Duke, and Duchess of Cambridge have also opted for video calls to carry out their charitable work.

Amid the pandemic, video sessions have become a norm, and the Queen has made quite an effort to get with the times. To prove that point, she made headlines last year when she published her first Instagram post.

At the time, it was the Queen’s first visit to London’s Science Museum, and she shared her experience on the platform. It was a trend of firsts for Queen Elizabeth as she also tweeted about the excursion for the first time back in 2014 and sent her first-ever email decades prior, in 1976.
