The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast 2019 👑🎄 📺 – BBC


MUSIC: God Save The Queen As a child, I never imagined that
one day a man would walk on the moon. Yet this year,
we marked the 50th anniversary of the famous Apollo 11 mission. It’s still looking very good.
Your go. The Eagle has landed. As those historic pictures
were beamed back to Earth, millions of us sat transfixed
to our television screens as we watched Neil Armstrong taking a small step for man
and a giant leap for mankind, and indeed for womankind. It’s a reminder for us all that giant leaps often start
with small steps. This year, we marked another
important anniversary, D-Day. On 6th June 1944, some 156,000 British, Canadian
and American forces landed in northern France. It was the largest ever
seaborne invasion and was delayed due to bad weather. I well remember the look of concern
on my father’s face. He knew the secret D-Day plans, but could of course share
that burden with no one. For the 75th anniversary
of that decisive battle, in a true spirit of reconciliation, those who had formerly
been sworn enemies came together
in friendly commemorations either side of the Channel, putting past differences behind them. Such reconciliation
seldom happens overnight. It takes patience
and time to rebuild trust, and progress often comes
through small steps. Since the end of the
Second World War, many charities, groups and organisations have worked to promote peace and unity
around the world, bringing together those
who have been on opposing sides. By being willing to put
past differences behind us and move forward together, we honour the freedom and democracy
once won for us at so great a cost. The challenges many people face today may be different to those
once faced by my generation, but I have been struck
by how new generations have brought a similar sense
of purpose to issues such as protecting our environment
and our climate. My family and I are also inspired by the men and women of our
emergency services and armed forces, and at Christmas we remember all
those on duty at home and abroad who are helping those in need and keeping us and our families
safe and secure. 200 years on from the birth of my great-great-grandmother
Queen Victoria, Prince Philip and I
have been delighted to welcome our eighth
great-grandchild into our family. Of course, at the heart
of the Christmas story lies the birth of a child, a seemingly small
and insignificant step overlooked by many in Bethlehem. But in time, through his teaching
and by his example, Jesus Christ would show the world
how small steps, taken in faith and in hope, can overcome long-held differences
and deep-seated divisions to bring harmony and understanding. Many of us already try
to follow in his footsteps. The path, of course,
is not always smooth, and may at times this year
have felt quite bumpy. But small steps can make
a world of difference. As Christmas dawned, church
congregations around the world joined in singing
It Came Upon The Midnight Clear. Like many timeless carols, it speaks not just
of the coming of Jesus Christ into a divided world many years ago, but also of the relevance even today of the angels’ message
of peace and goodwill. It’s a timely reminder of
what positive things can be achieved when people set aside
past differences and come together in the spirit
of friendship and reconciliation. And as we all look forward
to the start of a new decade, it’s worth remembering that it is often the small steps,
not the giant leaps, that bring about
the most lasting change. And so I wish you all
a very happy Christmas. # It came upon the midnight clear # That glorious song of old # From angels bending near the earth # To touch their harps of gold # Peace on the earth, goodwill to men # From heaven’s all-gracious King # The world in solemn stillness lay # To hear the angels sing # For lo the days are hastening on # By prophet bards foretold # When with the ever-circling years # Shall come the age of gold # When peace shall over all the earth # Its ancient splendours fling # And the whole world give back
the song # Which now the angels sing. #

    Is this some type of sick joke?
    Jesus Christ has nothing to do with politics or pagan Christmas.
    Then she’s shows her poor daughter in law as the representation of unity and forgiveness???
    The only thing that was missing was the Pope.👌🏿😂

    I admire and adore Queen Elizabeth. From the time I saw a newsreel of her address to the people on her 21st birthday I felt great respect for a great woman who has devoted her life to the people, fulfilling her duty with strength and grace. The people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth should be very proud.
    I hope the New Year brings peace and goodwill to all of us around the world.

    God bless the Queen and grant her a few more years on this mortal coil to reign over us, in the UK (and commonwealth), as our sovereign! Very good message!

    Finalmente la Regina si è accorta della gaffe tremenda che ha fatto nei confronti di ARCHIE che è solo un bambino e non c'entra niente con le dinastie i titoli quant'altro. Se vuole la pace tra figli e nipoti l'esempio lo deve dare lei. In famiglia Non esistono ne re ne regine ma, il sentimento

    Bellissimo Archie una faccia furba e biricchina auguro loro tanta serenità. Smussate i malintesi Non ne vale la pena penso sempre a Diana quanto sarebbe stata felice di vedere i suoi nipoti. Tutto questo per un brutto destino Non è accaduto. Voi che vi siete tutti cercate di essere felici anche senza corona

    I'm not from Britain and English isn't my native language. But it have become my annual tradition to listen to the queen's speech. She talks much more profoundly than any president or other state leader. Always gives me some soul comfort.

    Royal family/ Queen write off Princess Diana, Prince Harry and Megan Duchess of Sussex. That's sad and hurtful specially for Prince Harry. They could of just out of kindness put their photo up on the table but they chose not to. Sad times.

    Historically we have 'Mankind' – all inclusive. The Queen now introduces 'Womankind' – exclusive. What do we call the new generation of in-betweens? In our school days they were invarably called 'Poofs'. Is our Queen suggesting that there should be a 'Poofkind', ('Puffkind') – blown on the winds of confusion?

    What a lovely broadcast from the head-of-state of one of our principal diplomatic and military allies – those uplifting words, that measured dollop of choral pageantry, and finally the signature handbag at the pudding worktable. Thanks so much. 🙂 – Signed gratefully: Toomas Karmo, Nõo Rural Municipality, Estonia

    dear queen, your crown are in dangerous.. ramai wanita sdg merancang utk merampas crown mu itu wahai nenek. Siapkanlah diri sblm menemui kematian, serahkanlah takhtamu itu kepada pewaris sebenar yakni lelaki, jika tidak kehancuran…

    As the Queen said in her Christmas speech, "Small steps finally and will lead to giant leaps", we just need to do it even so small but maybe we will make it one day.
    May the peace and reconciliation always be with us regardless of religions, races, and political beliefs.

    hello love

    THE ANGELS MESSAGE IS TO FEAR GOD AND GIVE GLORY TO HIM…(NOT THE QOEEN OR THE POPE) CAUSE THE HOUR OF HIS JUDGEMENT HAS COME. WORSHIP HIM WHO MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH…NO ONE ELSE! AMEN!

    The Queen has been here ALL my life and now at 64 i can appriciate Her more, shes been one amazing leader and has always tried to do what she felt is BEST…maybe sometimes it wasnt what Her people thought was RIGHT but SHE has been totally dedicated to her People all over the World. Even though Harry and Meghan werent in the photos on her desk, she gave them a lovely and sweet recognition..God Bless the Queen…🙏🏼🤗

    In a country where people are homeless and the ones that work need to get support from food banks, it's a bit rich that the Queen talks about Jesus Christ yet knows nothing about his message.

    Ostentatious and pompous people that watch as their 'subjects' suffer makes me wonder what is lacking in the public's lives that draw them to celebrate and admire a family that do nothing but drain the exchequer of our taxes while they hoard their wealth in off shore accounts (then deny they had knowledge of this).

    I would say wake up people but I know you are part of the Bread & Circus population that won't change until it affects you.

    Mankind means human and not a gender. Anyway.

    Congratulations on the election and hopefully you can remove the yoke of your overlords in Brussels.

    Nice mention of D day .. the liberation of Europe from the Germans by the Armies of the Commonwealth and USA. Europe should remember the sacrifices and costs born by the Allies to liberate them.

    Unique Enigma

    Ugh, first time listening to a Christmas msg from her that left me feeling totally ill. With the under tone of how people, things should be forgiven over time it can be done, the queen says so. NO! no one is forgiving your son, there will be no reconciliation and there will certainly be no UNDERSTANDING! get that through all of your thick heads.. 🙂 Hope everyone enjoyed their christmas
