Elizabeth’s speech is part of the annual celebration of Commonwealth Day, a special day dedicated to the Commonwealth, the alliance between 53 sovereign states with the Queen as their symbolic head. Normally the royal family gathers at Westminster Abbey in London, but due to the corona pandemic, those festivities cannot take place this year. That is why a special TV broadcast on BBC One has been chosen.
In the special A Celebration for Commonwealth Day will feature Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. Presented from Westminster, the Queen will share her traditional message and will include lectures and musical performances ‘from all over the world’ by the Westminster Abbey choir and musicians Nitin Sawhney and Lianne La Havas, among others. Faith leaders from all over the Commonwealth will attend online. “This is an important speech to emphasize the unity of the royal family,” it said in various British media.
Hours later, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle give their already infamous interview on Oprah Winfrey. They will explain all about the ‘Megxit’ last year, the reason why they left the United Kingdom and why they abandoned their royal assignments. Palace sources say the Queen is furious about that conversation. In addition, Elizabeth would also have been angry because she had to hear the news of Meghan’s second pregnancy from the media.
