AceShowbiz - Queen Elizabeth and other British royal family members spend 2018 with many milestones, and it will continue next year. In her annual Chistmas broadcast on Tuesday, December 25, the Queen talked about the many happy things that had happened this year, and those that are to come in 2019.
"It's been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies, and another child expected soon," the 92-year-old monarch said in the footage. By two weddings, she referred to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding in May that was followed by Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October.
The British royal family also welcomed two additions into the family as Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis, with Prince William. Zara and Mike Tindall also welcomed their second daughter, Lena, in June.
"It helps to keep a grandmother well occupied," the Queen added in the video.
Weddings and births are not the only things they got to celebrate in 2018. "We have had other celebrations too, including the 70th birthday of the Prince of Wales," she said.
"Through the many changes I have seen over the years, faith, family and friendship have been not only a constant for me but a source of personal comfort and reassurance," Queen Elizabeth II continued saying. "Even with the most deeply held differences, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding."
The speech arrives after the royal family attended services together at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene at Sandringham on Tuesday morning. Meghan and Harry joined Kate and William during the occasion, and they looked like they're bonding well as if they were trying to deny the tension rumors among them.
According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, "William and Harry are going to have to bury the hatchet, put a few wobbles behind them" for Christmas Day. "It's not like they're not talking -- they're still incredibly close as brothers -- [but] there have been fallouts, there has been tension. Christmas is a good time for goodwill and forgiveness, so let's hope we see the princes do just that."
