Many just want a hug for Christmas this year, Queen Elizabeth says

Deepfake Queen Will Deliver Alternative Christmas Message

The 94-year-old queen herself is not taking part in her traditional Christmas celebrations at the Sandringham estate in eastern England this year because of the pandemic.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has offered a heartfelt message of hope in her annual Christmas speech. However, as the British monarch noted, the holiday was being celebrated in a different way this year amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"The teachings of Christ have served as my inner light as has the objective we can find in coming together to worship".

Many people in Britain were unable to spend Christmas with their family members or friends as rigorous anti-infection steps, including a lockdown, are in place in London and elsewhere. "Across the Commonwealth, my family and I have been inspired by stories of people volunteering in their communities, helping those in need", she continued.

She said: "In the United Kingdom and around the world people have risen magnificently to challenges and I'm so proud of this indomitable spirit".

The Queen said people owe "a debt of gratitude" to front-line services that shine "a lamp of hope" for them.

The Queen went on: "We continue to be inspired by the kindness of strangers and draw comfort that even on the darkest nights there is hope in the new dawn". But she said despite the distance we've all been forced to put between each other, 2020 has "brought us closer" in some ways.

Queen Elizabeth spread the message of hope as she delivered her annual Christmas speech amid Covid-19 crisis on Friday (December 25).

The fake queen is quite the cut-up, dancing around a palace room and quipping of Harry and Meghan, "There are few things more hurtful than someone telling you they prefer the company of Canadians". "And let me assure your of my thoughts and prayers".

"For me, this is a source of enduring hope in hard and unpredictable times", the monarch added. "It is in that spirit that I wish you a very happy Christmas".

"Having considered all the appropriate advice, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have decided that this year they will spend Christmas quietly in Windsor", a spokeswoman said.

A courageous double-amputee from the county has appeared alongside Sir Thomas Moore in the Queen's Christmas Day message for his charity work.

Her Majesty acknowledged that Christmas and other religious celebrations have not been able to continue as per usual this year, but said that hope was on the horizon despite the challenges we now face.

The Queen typically has a variety of personal family photos displayed on her desk during her speech, but this year she only had one: a photograph of her husband, Prince Philip, from her private collection.
