I watched the Queen's message on television for the first time, thanks to BBC World News.

Given the current circumstances, the theme of Her Majesty's Christmas speech was appropriate. My favourite moment was shots of Prince Andrew in a military uniform taking the British military personnel.

I really enjoyed Her Majesty's speech. I was planning on watching it online later but they just suddenly showed it on tv, without any warning kinda threw me off for a second, but it was very well done and I loved all the clips included.

I know that this is The Mail and that it is anti-monarchy but has anyone else read the vitriolic comments by the readers. I don't think there was a positive comment amongst the 59 replies and that is so sad, I think.

The Mail actively moderates the comments. If a submission doesn't meet the tone requirements they set for an article, it doesn't get in. Which is sad.

I read the article about the Queen's Christmas Message not long ago, and it looks like a few positive comments got posted. Not many, mind you, but a few. I spend some time over there "voting down" the negative ones.

I am aware of that but I have actually had positive comments posted there and regularly see a small percentage but this article seemed only to have vitriolic comments and the article was actually quite postive as far as The Mail goes.

I enjoyed the footage featuring the Queen with Charles.

I loved Queen Elizabeth's theme that a meaningful life is to serve others.
Her speech tied the Royal Family's service to the public with the film clips.

I also thought the recongition of Prince Charles was very meaningful.

Can this be true?

suedkurier.de | Queen erlässt Maulkorb für Angestellte

Found this article today ... basically it says that the employees of the royal household (more than 200 butlers, servants, cooks, cleaning personal) have to sign a paper which requires them not only to strict secrecy (which I could understand), but also to return any received gifts, papers, documents, even personal diaries!!! in case of leaving the palace.

What is the use of giving someone a gift or a thank-you-letter or ..., if the person has to return it upon e.g. retirement?

IMHO that's inordinate!

I would imagine it is discouragement for those who want to cash in on their experience with the BRF.

If indeed the article is true, I would imagine it has more to do with Paul Burrell taking personal items and diaries of Princess Diana for "safekeeping".

Not to mention the number of items that have come up for sale over the years.
