The Queen’s Speech- Season 2, Episode 5

The Queen’s Speech- Season 2, Episode 5

October 25, 2022

Every year Her Majesty the Queen sits down on Christmas Day at 3PM (GMT) to address the nation and the Commonwealth nations delivering her Queen's Speech. 

Sadly we lost the Queen in September, so I decided to take a look at the history of the Queen's Speech including the first televised production of it.

This year's speech will be very different, this time delivered by King Charles III.

The speech serves a reminder of the joys of Christmas aswell as the meaning behind it.

Hope you enjoy it.
