Nash continued, “It’s also going to be a historic first Christmas as monarch for the king, who will be recording his first Christmas Day message for broadcast on 15 December. I’m sure he will reflect on his mother’s remarkable reign and the outpouring of love and support for him following her sad death.”
Nash also mentioned a few royal family traditions that King Charles will likely continue: “I think the royal family will want to honor all the traditions they associate with Christmas at Sandringham—exchanging gifts on Christmas Eve and walking to St. Mary Magdalene for the Christmas Day service—but there’s no doubt it will be an emotional time for them without their matriarch.”
Sending virtual hugs to the entire royal family.
