Queen reflects on tragedies in Christmas speech

| 27/12/2017 | 12 Comments

(CNS): From The terrorist attacks in London and Manchester to the devastation in the Caribbean from hurricanes, Queen Elizabeth II recalled the tragedies of 2017 during her sixtieth televised Christmas speech. Alongside the bad news, however, the British and Commonwealth monarch also paid tribute to her husband, Prince Phillip, who recently retired from front line royal work, and what she called his “unique sense of humour”.

She also spoke of welcoming new members to her family in 2018, with the impending marriage of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as well as the anticipated arrival of the Cambridge’s third child.

      This must be that good old respect for elders that I hear so much about in Cayman.

      Whether you like her or not the Queen is a public servant and provides an invaluable service to the UK

        Why should we “respect” a legacy of terror and inhumanity?

        How about you start respecting ISIS and then I’ll do the same for ol’ Liz.

        Yes, they are equal in barbarity – actually no, ISIS pales in comparison.

        Oh wait, no – time always justifies the lasting legacies of evil when it comes to certain groups…my bad.

      She is a Constitutional Monarch with no executive powers. Read your history books, or like Donald Trump maybe you can’t read. Talk about a wannabe dictator, look north and past Cuba.

        People will always dislike the monarchy, even if it was only titular and honorary, which it basically is
        no one likes feeling inferior

      1. Why are you so concerned about Liz’s well-being?

      2. Her people don’t believe in your God.
      (Just check recent threads for confirmation.)

      3. Her people will now pretend (2) is an absurd claim as it serves their fickle agenda in this regard.

      4. “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery.”
