Hidden detail in King Charles' Christmas Day speech

King Charles III has delivered his first Christmas Day message after Queen Elizabeth II's death however he made one glaring omission.

The monarch delivered his address from the Chapel of St George at Windsor Castle where the Queen and Prince Philip are laid to rest.

He spoke of the grief of losing loved ones and how their absence is felt especially during holidays like Christmas and addressed conflicts, famine, natural disasters and the cost of living.

"I particularly want to pay tribute to all those wonderfully kind people who so generously give food or donations, or that most precious commodity of all, their time, to support those around them in greatest need, together with the many charitable organisations which do such extraordinary work in the most difficult circumstances," he said.

The King then went on to praise Prince William and Kate Middleton for a recent trip to Wales where they "shined a light on practical examples of this community spirit".

Many however pointed out the King failed to mention Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in his Christmas Day address, which is a stark difference from when he expressed his love for the couple during his first address as King.


It comes after Harry and Meghan released their six-part Netflix docuseries where they made allegations that palace aides who worked for Prince William had briefed staff against the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

In one of the episodes, Meghan also claimed that William and Kate were formal behind closed doors and highlighted the difference between American and British culture.

“Kate feels hurt and betrayed that Harry would do this to her...especially as the pair used to be so close,” a source told Us Weekly.

William is also said to be "disappointed" by Harry’s behaviour, but at this stage has no plans to retaliate or tell his side of the story.

“He’s remaining dignified and is getting on with his job,” an insider told the publication.

“He’s disappointed with Harry for portraying him and the family in a cynical light."
