Queen to snub royals in Christmas speech in favour of her ‘heirs’, experts claim

The Queen is reportedly set to snub any mention of the Royal Family in her Christmas speech and instead focus solely on her heirs, two royal experts have claimed.

Typically broadcast after lunch on Christmas Day, the Queen usually addresses the nation and stresses the importance of family.

Royal commentator Stewart Pearce has claimed however that this year her heirs and in particular her great-grandchildren will be at the forefront of her speech.

Speaking on the Royall Us podcast, he said: “I have a feeling that Her Majesty will have lots of photographs of the great-grandchildren.”

“I feel that's what it's going to be because she's really feeling the stimulation of future promise.

“And, of course, the little ones are what she loves to concentrate on she's an amazing grandmama.”

Fellow royal commentator Christina Garibaldi, added: “I mean it really seems like it and she's got so many. I don't know how she keeps track so she's got like 12 great-grandkids it's a lot to keep up with.”

Earlier this year, another royal commentator, Neil Sean suggested that the Queen will avoid discussing “Royal Family troubles” in her Christmas speech.

He claims that the reportedly “fractious” relations within the Royal Family over the year might mean she chooses her words "more carefully".

Tensions have supposedly been high sinceMeghan MarkleandPrince Harryreleased a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, where they levelled a number of accusations at the royal institution.

Sean added: “Normally she alludes to the fact that it’s all about family, it’s Christmas time… But she’s going to have to tread very carefully this year in what she says and who she speaks about.

“Because if she offends anyone – which sadly, we all seem to do when it’s about families – she’s going to have a problem.”

The Daily Star has approached Buckingham Palace for comment.
