King Charles III has chosen an important location for his first Christmas address as the King of the United Kingdom. The 74-year-old monarch paid tribute to his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II, in the address, which was filmed at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.

According to the Royal Family’s Twitter account, the chapel has “unique Royal associations” and has been the site of royal weddings, funerals, and the Committal Service for Queen Elizabeth II.

The chapel is also a place of worship for the Royal Family and has hosted Royal Maundy services in which special Maundy money is distributed to local pensioners in commemoration of Jesus washing the feet of the Apostles at the Last Supper.

The King used his first Christmas broadcast to sympathize with families struggling with the cost-of-living crisis and praise individuals, charities, and faith groups supporting those in need.

Charles talked about the “great anxiety and hardship” shared by many trying to “pay their bills and keep their families fed and warm” during his televised message, which featured footage of a food bank and other scenes of meals being distributed to the homeless.

Warm reception from the fans

The speech received a positive response from viewers across the globe. One follower wrote “A beautiful and timely message. Particularly appreciate how he acknowledges that so many people are not Christian, yet people of all beliefs can hold universal values of love and light.”

Another fan wrote “The first official King Speech. It’s a tradition to watch the Queens speech on Christmas for my family. We didn’t know what to expect without her. However, King Charles lll did very well and solidified another year of family tradition! Merry Christmas everyone!”

The site of the speech, St. George’s Chapel in Windsor is known to the followers of the Royal Family as the site of Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018 and Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October 2018.

However, it is most recently been frozen in history as the final resting place of Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away on September 8 at the age of 96.

The chapel has been used for royal weddings and funerals and is also a place of worship for the Royal Family.

It has hosted Royal Maundy services in which special Maundy money is distributed to local pensioners in commemoration of Jesus washing the feet of the Apostles at the Last Supper.
