In her speech, Queen Elizabeth II also remembered the people of Manchester and London especially those that were affected by terrorist attacks.

“We think of our homes as places of warmth, familiarity and love… there is a timeless simplicity to the pull of home. This Christmas, I think of London and Manchester, whose powerful identities shone through over the past twelve months in the face of appalling attacks,” she said.

According to People, Queen Elizabeth II’s message was filmed in the 1844 Room in Buckingham Palace and will be released on Christmas Day. Her special address also featured performances by the Commonwealth Youth Orchestra and Choir, conducted by Artistic Director, Paul Carroll.
