King Charles III: Memories of the Queen and families in distress – Panorama

King Charles III remembered his “beloved mother” Queen Elizabeth II in his first Christmas speech. In a televised speech on Sunday, he said it was a tough time for those who lost the holidays. “We feel their absence with every familiar season and remember them with every cherished tradition.” He shares with Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September this year, “a belief in the extraordinary capacity of every human being to touch the lives of others with kindness and compassion”. That is “the essence of our society and the foundation of our society,” the 74-year-old asserted.

In his first Christmas speech as British King Charles III. And my condolences to all the affected families. The king said there was a “time of great anxiety and need”. It applies to all those affected by conflict, famine or natural disasters worldwide, as well as those “finding ways to pay their bills and feed and shelter their families”. Millions of people in the UK are struggling with rising food prices and energy costs.

Thanks for the “selfless work”.

Charles thanked the military, health and social workers, teachers and all government workers for their “selfless service”. They are very humane and readily respond to the needs of others. Especially in these sectors there is now dissatisfaction with low wages and frequent strikes. The king’s words were accompanied by pictures of food boards, among others. “I want to pay a special tribute to all the wonderful and kind people who generously donate their time, be it food or donations or very precious goods, to support those who need it most,” Raja said.

Now the idea for the traditional talk goes to John Reith, the founding director of the BBC. He approached King George V in 1922, who initially rejected the idea because he equated radio with light entertainment and therefore did not see it as a suitable medium. Ten years later he opened himself up to such an address, first broadcast on Christmas Day in 1932. Charles’ mother, Queen Elizabeth II, delivered a Christmas speech every year. His first event was in 1952, when he discussed his coronation the following year. In 1957 the speech was broadcast for the first time on television. The Queen’s Speech was then broadcast live, and from 1960 it was recorded a few days in advance, and it was sent to various Commonwealth countries in good time. Charles’ speech was recorded at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on 13 December. The Queen is buried under the chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Christmas Carols at Westminster Abbey

Her niece Kate previously dedicated a Christmas carol to the Queen at London’s Westminster Abbey, which she arranged and televised on Christmas Eve. He paid tribute to the Queen’s “incredible legacy” which has “deeply inspired so many of us”. Kate and William’s children Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, sang loudly. Charles and his Queen consort Camilla were among 1,800 guests at the event. Heir William read an excerpt from the Queen’s 2012 Christmas message.

The British media emphasized the joint appearance of the royal family above all else. If they did, they would have set up a sign of solidarity against allegations made by William’s younger brother Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan, in the Netflix series “Harry and Meghan.” Finally, on Christmas Day, the royal family appeared with Charles III. Up for the first time since the pandemic for traditional service near their Sandringham residence. Prince Louis (4), the youngest son of Crown Prince William and Princess Kate, wore shorts when the temperature was so low. Crowds of visitors waited for hours to catch a glimpse of the royal family.
