Notice there is no photo of Henry and his family in the desk? The queen clearly hates gingers.

Also missing: Anne, Andrew, Edward... So I wouldn't read too much into it.

Are you saying the queen is losing her memory in addition to hating gingers?

Britain's queen hails climate movement in Christmas Day message

Looks like the queen has been hypnotised by the fake news globalist MSM.

They are everywhere, I tell you, everywhere.

The monarch's annual message followed a chaotic year in which Britain feuded over its split from the European Union and her scandal-plagued son Prince Andrew withdrew from public life.

A year that associated the Queen’s son with a sex trafficker is worse than a year with three divorces. 

Divorce is understood and accepted, but a prince involved with sexual exploitation of young girls can seriously damage the public sentiment about the monarchy.

I don’t get into these debates about climate change, but there are a big bunch of men, women and children out there who are no longer alive because of the “fake news globalist MSM” selling wars to a susceptible group. Nice Christmas spirit you got going.

So is the Queen a shape-shifter or not then?

Jimizo:

You should have switched the Irony Alert light on before your first post. Looks like a fair proportion of the readership failed to see it coming.

Your question re the Queen, though, deserves serious consideration.

conspiracy theories about climate change? Nada pal.

Conspiracy theories about chemical attacks in Syria? Oh wait, that’s not a conspiracy theory anymore, or did CNNFOXBBC decide not to tell you?

So the Queen, along with her fleet of private royal jets and cars and boats, is the peoples spokesperson for climate change.?

I used to believe in our royal family. But when the news is full of whether 99 year old Prince Phillip will make it to his family Christmas lunch, not long after a woman dies in the street with a broken leg waiting 6 hours for an ambulance, then I somehow feel we got our priorities terribly wrong.

No, but it doesn't hurt to have her on side. She still has a lot of influence on older and more conservative people who aren't necessarily convinced by the science.

BigYen, I do agree with that. But it would also be so easy for that family with all it's riches to make some drastic environmental changes to their lifestyles and lead by example - instead of a comfy speech on Christmas Day.

Better later than never. I bet Bozo wouldn't be speaking out on the issue. And for Donnie Traitor, surely you jest.

So she is sitting in her palace and watching the fake MSM. Well, at her age, no blame.

Even 92 year old queens are smart enough to understand scientific proof.

The total energy used by all the members of the royal family and their residences including their castles and palaces are enormous and could only be compared to industrial use and not the levels of the commoners.

Even with Prince Charles. But I don't know of a single palace or residence which is using renewable energies.

When you add in the large numbers of staff the energy consumptions again increase.

Private flights, like Harry and Meghan living in a private jet to stay at Elton Johns med house. Randy Angy who took numerous copter flights even when not needed.

While a welcome statement from the queen,

The Windsors need to put their own house in order.

I retract the apart about the royal family not using any renewable energies

https://www.royal.uk/royal-household-and-environment

In 2019 its CO2 emission total for business travel was 3,344 tonnes, compared to 1,687 tonnes in 2018.

The family's overall greenhouse gas emissions grew by 3% to 8,393 tonnes, with the travel increase offset by a 22% reduction in output from heating, lighting and vehicles.

I don't really think that what the Queen thinks of gingers is clear at all.

Love the queen.

A very dignified lady and a wonderful person to represent a nation.

I'm not an anti-Royalist or whatever they are. In fact I used to be very supportive of our royal family. But what has she ever done for you to gain your love? (and please don't fall for that tourist revenue line - have you ever seen any of that revenue?)

That family live in tax-free privilege and are supposed to represent British history but they have ended up in numerous affairs, divorces, and now accusations of underage sexual abuse.

Whilst they own half of the country and live in splendour, there are homeless people dying in the streets and people unable to get hospital treatment - not really a glowing tribute to the society they represent.

I support the end of the monarchy. Have done for decades. The privilege classes. And an end to the House of Lords with unelected peers.

Zich, I think they are gradually being sussed out. If she cared about the country she would never have accepted the present government, or Boris' speech. Look at the state of Andrew, Sarah Ferguson, Charles.

They should keep their history, no more tax-free earnings, and earn salaries for inbound tourism.

Prince Charles wants to reduce the size of the royal family on the public purse down to the monarch and the immediate heirs to the throne which would be, Charles and Camilla, William and Kate and their children. Harry and Meghan and their children.

The rest wold be removed from the public purse and would have to receive support from the monarch as is now happening over Randy Sandy otherwise they work. They would also stand down from royal duties.

Personally I would rather end it once the queen dies.

It’s hard to like or dislike her. She doesn’t do anything to like nor dislike. Somebody commented this is harder than it seems.

I'm not a monarchist, but she's done ok with the speech.

Be interesting to see how her view is represented come independence and unity for the oppressed nations, next year.

Their picture was notably absent from the collection of family photographs on the queen's desk in her televised address.

Perhaps, the Queen did not get permission from her grandson Harry and Megan. Queen will be sued by Harry and Megan if she has shown their picture in her Televised Christmas message. The Queen has respected her grandson Harry and Megan privacy.

I agree. I'm with the Sex Pistols on that one. I know - I met Glen Matlock 5 years ago.
