Palace officials spoil Queen's Christmas Day message

Date published: 27 December 2018


One of my annual highlights, the Queen's Christmas Day Broadcast, was totally ruined for me this year by widespread advance publication of its contents.

Leaking details of the broadcast was once virtually a hanging offence, but it seems that this is now actually a duty of palace officials.

Next year, it would be nice for Her Majesty's remarks to come as a total surprise.
