Queen Elizabeth II Calls for Unity Ahead of Brexit
The UK monarch has remained carefully and deliberately neutral on all political matters in her 66 years on the throne, CNN reports.
But in her Christmas message this year, three months before Britain is due to leave the European Union amid deep political divisions, Queen Elizabeth II appeals for people to show more respect to those with opposing views.
"Even with the most deeply held differences, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding," the Queen said.
The monarch also mentioned the royal weddings and births that have taken place this year.
"It's been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies, and another child expected soon," she said. "It helps to keep a grandmother well occupied."
Referencing the Christmas story, the Queen said it retained its appeal.
"I believe his message of peace on earth and goodwill to all is never out of date. It can be heeded by everyone; it's needed as much as ever.
