yesterday, the queen of England recorded a much anticipated "Christmas speech" in Buckingham Palace, the Queen's Christmas message is different from last year, this year the queen Christmas speech focus on the "home"... But many British media have speculated this, "the Queen's speech around the photo is a 68 year old son Prince Charles, the it is likely that he will pass the throne to Charles, but not Prince William."... Experts at the University College London UCL, summed up the Queen's Christmas speech "routine full of"..


from the queen of England from 1951 to 2016 in the 64 Christmas speech, the queen used 42 thousand words, but only 3991 words have never been repeated.

so, only 9.5% of the words in the Queen's speech are new words. It can be said that the Queen's speech is a routine,

The words that the queen of

families (family)

Commonwealth (Commonwealth)

children (children)

peoples (people)

The phrases that

often repeat are:

tragic example (tragic example)

shining example (outstanding example)

weak and innocent (weak and innocent)...

The theme of the Queen's speech in

2016 was "inspiration," and this year, the theme of the speech was "home".

In his speech, the queen of

explained the meaning of "home":

"we regard home as a source of warmth, familiarity and love, sharing memories and stories. This is why everyone will return to their hometown every Christmas, and the yearning for home is eternal. For everyone, home is not only a house, it's not a home or a city... We want home to be safe and even a refuge. "

in May this year, Buckingham Palace announced the decision of the 96 year old prince of Philip to retire this fall, and the British Queen supported it. Since 1952, Prince Philip has executed 22219 Royal duties independently. Prince Philip will no longer undertake the Royal duties alone, but will still travel with the queen as the Queen's husband.

, in addition, Xiaobian, a student of supervision network, reminds you that the queen of England didn't use "Merry Christmas" in her Christmas address, but simply said "Happy Christmas".

what's the difference between "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Christmas"?

generally speaking, on Christmas day in the United States, most people say "Merry Christmas", and Merry Christmas is more popular than Happy Christmas.

but in the Commonwealth countries, people use more Happy and less Merry. Merry Christmas only appeared four times in the Queen's Christmas address, the rest of which was Happy Christmas. Because in the period of Vitoria, the social atmosphere was rather conservative. The word "merry" was "drunk", so you changed merry to a more neutral happy. In fact, in Britain, Happy Christmas is more popular than Merry Christmas.

The origin of

Merry Christmas

"Merry Christmas" in fact, the origin of the problem is relatively vague, the earliest date, can be traced back to the 1534. John Fisher, a British Catholic bishop of Rome, first wrote "Merry Christmas" in the Christmas congratulation letter to British politician Thomas Cromwell.

The original meaning of

Merry is "jovial, and outgoing, probably mildly intoxicated", which is natural and may be a little drunk.

so, "the longest standby" queen in the annual Christmas speech will be neither too fast nor too slow a sound
