Queen Elizabeth II’s 2018 Christmas address to the Nation:


"Glad tidings and a very Merry Christmas to you all!


This year, one is pleased to be able to express one’s immense pride in all citizens of Grecondom and indeed of the wider Grecosphere. For this year, without doubt, began as the bleakest of years, both for Grecons and for their Human Beans, with a sword of Domocles hanging over our beloved Dolls’ Houses Past and Present website! However, as the year draws to a close, and after a truly amazing outpouring of love and support, the future looks bright! It is one’s dearest hope and belief that ‘normal service’ will be resumed before Spring 2019 is out and Grecons will be rejoicing and frolicking once more.


One thanks one‘s subjects for their forbearance in the face of adversity: despondent Human Beans and a lack of creative outlet in particular.


I hope you will all join one in a Christmas toast to an exciting 2019. Peace and goodwill to all Grecons and may your Human Beans be kind, hardworking and cooperative."


[I can't post the image of Queenie in one of her palatial drawing rooms but then most Grecons don't have television. They're used to sound-only via their Barton or Dol-Toi wirelesses. The speech was originally posted on Facebook. Thank you to Zoe for sending it to me. I've posted it here for any others who may not have seen it]
