In the eyes of this crazy British lady (for that is what I am, all rumors to the contrary notwithstanding), I think the wearer of The Crown (The. Real. One.) outdid herself today with her annual Christmas message. Delivered perfectly–she’s 94 years old, for Pete’s sake, and puts almost any decades-younger American politician that springs readily to mind, to shame (looking at you Joe Biden). Kind, empathetic, understated, wise, and charming.
Impeccable production values too. Seamless segues from HM to sundry Royals, to the first responders, to the unheralded, and unsung, unknown warriors who’ve been keeping things together for us all.
I do believe the House of Windsor has embraced the twenty-first century.
You go, Ma’am (“as in ‘ham’ and not “ma’am as in farm”)!
(PS: Still not sure about Charlie.)
Merry Christmas, Everyone.
