The offspring of the British royal family keep the Queen Elizabeth II busy: she is a "busy grandmother," said the 92-year-old in her Christmas message sent on Tuesday.
"It's been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies and another baby coming soon," she said. "It helps keep your grandmother busy."
Weddings and newborns
This year, two grandchildren of the queen were married and two others had a baby: The youngest son of Crown Prince Charles, Harry, married in May, the American actress Meghan Markle.
In October, Eugenie, the daughter of Prince Andrew, married his long-term partner, Jack Brooksbank. Charles & # 39; son William and his wife Kate became parents for the third time in April. Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Tindall, got a baby in June. Harry and Meghan expect their first child this spring.
After the British press had initially reported mego about Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex is now making negative headlines. The reason is that she seems discouraging with her staff.
The tabloid "Daily Mirror" gave Meghan the name "Duchess Difficult" (in German: "Duchess difficult"). Despite the reports, the royal family performed in good spirits on Tuesday to the Christmas attendant near the royal residence of Sandringham in Norfolk, East England.
Harry and William came with their wives and Prince Charles. In his Christmas address, the British monarch also requires a respectful approach to dissenters, possibly with regard to British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is targeting her Brexit course.
Even with the deepest differences, the other person must be treated with respect and fellow humanity, said Elizabeth II. "This is always the best first step to a better understanding." (AFP)
