King Charles III is set to give his festive speech to the nation and Commonwealth. He will be standing next to a replantable Christmas tree, and Buckingham Palace has released an image of the monarch in front of it. The tree is kept in a pot so it can be used again next year, making it an environmentally-friendly option. Sustainable decorations are hanging from its branches, which is a nod to the King’s environmental campaigning. The Christmas message will be broadcast at 3 pm GMT on Monday. The King will deliver his speech from a room that leads onto Buckingham Palace’s balcony, with the Victoria Memorial visible over his shoulder. While we don’t know what the King will talk about in his second festive speech, it’s likely to touch on topics that are important to him. In 2022, the message followed a similar template to the one established by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. It combined personal reflections with references to topical issues facing the country and the Christian faith..
