Queen Elizabeth extols goodwill and respect in Christmas message

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth said in her Christmas message that the festival’s message of peace and goodwill needs to be heeded as much as ever, and people should respect each other even when they habour the most deeply held differences.

During her annual address, the 92-year-old monarch spoke of family and friendship following a year in which her grandson Prince Harry married U.S.-born actress Meghan Markle.

Another grandchild, Princess Eugenie, also married this year and the queen’s sixth and seventh great grandchildren were born, while she made her debut appearance on the front row of a fashion show.

She also led British and Commonwealth tributes to the soldiers of the World War One on the centenary of the signing of the Armistice that ended it in 1918.

The queen wore a cocktail dress in ivory silk with pastel blue, white and gold lame overlay designed by Angela Kelly for the broadcast, which was recorded in the White Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace.
