Shared own grief in Christmas speech Saturday

The news came shortly after the queen gave an unusually personal Christmas speech to the people in which she opened up about the grief over her husband Prince Philips’ death.

The monarch said she and her family miss the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April. Dressed in a red dress and pearls, the queen sat at a table with a framed picture of her and her husband from the diamond wedding day in 2007.

– Although this is a time of great joy and merriment for many, Christmas can be difficult for those who have lost loved ones. Especially this year, I understand why, Elizabeth said in the speech that was sent on the afternoon of the first day of Christmas.

During this year’s Christmas celebration, the family especially misses one well-known laugh, she said.

– At the same time as I and my family miss him very much, I know that he would have wanted us to enjoy Christmas, the queen said.

She added that her family gives her great joy and emphasized that this year she has had four new great-grandchildren.

– Even though covid-19 again means that we can not celebrate exactly as we would have liked, we can still enjoy many joyful traditions, be it Christmas carols – as long as it is a well-known melody – Christmas tree decorations, giving and receiving gifts or watch a favorite movie that we all know the end of, said the 95-year-old.
