Queen Elizabeth II Christmas Message Queen Elizabeth II delivered her annual Christmas Message from London. Many video clips were shown as she spoke about reconciliation. Topics included the Scottish independence referendum, para-athletes competing in the Commonwealth Games, and those who serve in war and fighting diseases such as Ebola. A focus was the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I and the spontaneous Christmas truce that year. The program ended with the carol “Silent Night.”

The tradition of the Royal Christmas message dates back to 1932, with a radio address by King George V. Queen Elizabeth II made the first televised address in 1957. close
