One of the UK’s traditional Christmas activities is listening to Queen Elizabeth II’s message and going to church with her family.
The Queen of England reassures people in her Christmas message 2020
The COVID-19 acute respiratory infection pandemic may prevent British people from attending mass at churches, but it cannot prevent the 94-year-old queen from carrying out her most anticipated mission of the year. The national message of the United Kingdom, as well as that of the Commonwealth, was broadcast on television on Christmas Day, December 25.
In her speech, Queen Elizabeth II expressed her sympathy to the people for the recent difficult time, and expressed hope for a brighter future. She also praised the indomitable spirit of those who have risen strongly to the challenges of the pandemic.
In 2020, the Queen of England lives virtually in isolation at Windsor Castle with her husband Prince Philip, 99. The backdrop of Queen Elizabeth II’s year-end message is her desk – where the only family photo on display is a portrait of Prince Philip. “We continue to be inspired by the kindness of the unknown and draw solace that even in the darkest of nights, there is hope at dawn,” the Queen said. .
Currently, the number of deaths from COVID-19 in the UK has surpassed 70,000 – the second highest in Europe, after Italy. In many parts of the UK, including the capital London, people are advised to limit leaving their homes and not meet other people due to concerns about a new variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which has been reported is much more contagious than the original strain. For many people, this time of year will be very sad, in that they may be mourning loved ones who have passed away due to COVID-19, or they may not be able to get together as a family for the end of the year. Understanding this, in her speech, Queen Elizabeth II wrote: “If you are among them, you are not alone. I always turn my thoughts to you and I pray for you. “.
This is not the first time the Queen of England has reassured the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. In April and May, she also gave two televised speeches, filmed at Windsor Castle, to encourage people when Britain was in lockdown to prevent disease.
Also due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the British Royal Family this year will have a “stay-at-home” Christmas, instead of gathering together at Sandringham House in Norfolk like every year.
