Mac on... royal weddings | Mail Online

What the cartoonist thinks the Queen might be thinking - some humour for people.

As usual I sat with my glass of sherry with family and friends to watch the Queen's Christmas Day Message and as usual (at least for the last few years) I have felt disappointed that she actually spoke for a total of just a few minutes. These days, the format is just as staged if not more so than if she were sitting at her desk in her own home. There is nothing personal about the way the message is done, it is not as if we have been invited into the comfort of her home to see her relaxed by the Christmas tree giving us guidance or encouragment in these difficult times. No indeed, we see her almost cut and pasted like a puppet in different locations! Give it back to the BBC I say! Still, she looked jolly and rather lovely in her purple outfit and seemed to enjoy the choristers singing at the end, whilst I am left with sherry everywhere trying to decide whether to go out and play football with the local villagers!

Listening to and watching Her Majesty makes me immensely proud to be English. I find Queen Elizabeth to be inspiring!

What sort of percentage viewing figures does that represent?

I have no idea, I just know that 6.5 million people watched it.
However the BBC News at 7pm got 0.5 million more viewers.

But there must be a great many people who watched it on the SKY "red button", like I did, because I missed it live. I doubt if there are any stats to show that, though...

About 10% of the population - as the population of the UK is about 60 million.

There may be more interest but that doesn't mean people are going to watch the most boring royal event of the year - this year was more 'blah, blah, blah' than usual. The Queen's message used to be inspiring but now it is just plain boring.

As the population of Britain has increased the number of people watching/listening to the Queen's message has decreased.
