The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast

This kind of made me have second thoughts, as to why we Americans broke away from the mother country. Though respectful of other faiths, the Queen’s Christian faith shines through clearly. Following this year’s speech, is the first televised Christmas speech she gave in 1957, reading from John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress.

One response to “The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast

    My wife and I have been watching Netflix’s The Crown recently. While I am aware that the series tends to stretch the truth around the events surrounding the Royals for creative reasons, the series has kindled a curiosity within me to learn more about our kindred ancestors “across the pond.”

    I thought they covered story behind the 1957 Queen’s Christmas address quite well.

    Quite… (said in my best cockney accent)
