Celebration of Advent
Her Majesty The Queen lit the first candle in the Advent wreath at the Royal Palace.
As we begin what will be a different way to celebrate of Advent this year, I believe it is important for us to share light and hope with each other.
Today, we light the first candle in the Advent wreath here at the Palace.
It is my hope that these special weeks leading up to Christmas will fill us all with joy and good cheer.
