This year, the queen’s Christmas speech Isabel II it was particularly expected! The monarch took advantage of this speech to pay tribute to her late husband, Prince Felipe (who died on April 9, 2021 at the age of 99). He also thought of his new great-grandchildren, including Lilibet, daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Queen Elizabeth II addressed her subjects on Saturday, December 25, 2021, a few hours before New Year’s Eve (and before the concert Together at christmas, in which Kate Middleton participated). She spoke extensively about the memory of her missing husband, Prince Philip, before winking at her four new great-grandchildren.
“When overwhelmed by worry, adults don’t see happiness in simple things, while children do. And it will be a merry Christmas for me and my family, even with a less familiar laugh. [celui du prince Philip, NDLR], because we have the opportunity to (…) rediscover the magic of the holidays through the eyes of our little ones. We had the pleasure of welcoming four new ones this year.“said the queen.
Thus, Elizabeth II includes her great-granddaughter Lilibet, daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in the new members of the royal family. Away from the eyes, but still close to the heart!
