The Queens Christmas Broadcast 2015 Thimble

£8.95
The Queen’s speech has been the highlight of Christmas day for many people since 1952, first on radio then later in 1957 on the small screen. Recorded in Buckingham Palace’s 18th Century Room, 2015’s broadcast reflected on a year marked by disasters, terrorist attacks and a refugee crisis. The Queen encouraged her audience to find hope in ‘moments of darkness’ and quoted the Gospel of John. The Queen also noted the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and thanked those who served in the conflict, the tradition of decorating the Christmas tree, and how her great-great grandfather, Prince Albert, brought the tradition with him from Germany to Britain. The Queen then noted the birth of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, and that she would be the newest addition of her family to help her decorate the Christmas tree. The Queen spoke about the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square, and acknowledged how Norway gives London the tree as a gift for helping them in World War II.
