Queen Elizabeth subtly pays tribute to Prince Charles in her Christmas message.


A picture from today’s broadcast will show Queen Elizabeth giving a sweet nod to her first born and heir to the throne, the Prince of Wales, Charles.

Today, Queen Elizabeth will broadcast her annual Christmas message to the British people.

We can expect the long-reigning British monarch to highlight the best moments of the year. Also, recognising the hardest parts of 2018.

We got a sneak peek of this year’s Christmas message.

The message comes with a picture. It shows Her Majesty recording the Christmas broadcast in the White Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace. It also has a festive Christmas tree in the background. 

As royal reporter Rebecca English first pointed out on Twitter, Queen Elizabeth paid tribute to her eldest son with a photo subtly placed on her table.

That photo shows Elizabeth and Prince Philip holding a young Charles back in 1948.

It’s placed on the table. The Queen never leaves anything to chance and this is clearly a reference to her son and heir on the occasion of his 70th birthday last month.

The Prince of Wales celebrated his milestone 70th birthday last month. The royals honoured it with a new family portraits and a black tie celebration hosted by Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace.

At the party, Queen Elizabeth gave her first born a touching toast. Her toast highlighted his philanthropic work, family life, and of course the privilege for a mother to toast her son on his 70th birthday.

It’s typical for the Queen to have sweet family photos present in her Christmas message.

Last year, she had a picture from her wedding to Prince Philip along with a more recent portrait to honour their 70th wedding anniversary.

There were also adorable photos of Her Majesty’s great-grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte on the table during the broadcast.

The Queen’s Christmas message will be broadcast today at 3 p.m. GMT. Tune in to the royal family’s official Twitter account to watch.
