In his Christmas speech, King Charles III mentioned the war in Ukraine and promised to do everything for peace in the world
King Charles III of the United Kingdom delivered his annual Christmas speech, in which he made a veiled reference to the war in Ukraine. He said the words of Jesus "seem more relevant than ever," alluding to the armed aggression.
Charles III wished "peace on earth and goodwill to all" and promised to do everything possible to protect each other. In his Christmas speech, the King emphasized the importance of "universal" values in a time of "increasingly tragic conflict around the world."
"And in a time of increasingly tragic conflicts around the world, I pray that we can also do everything in our power to protect each other. Jesus' words seem more relevant than ever: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," Charles III said.
He mentioned Ukraine in the context of "conflicts around the world," including the war in the Gaza Strip. In particular, he called for helping other people and striving for good.
"Such values are universal, they unite our Abrahamic family of religions and other belief systems across Britain and the world. They remind us to imagine ourselves in the shoes of our neighbors and to seek their good as well as our own," the King said.
Charles III's speech did not violate British Christmas traditions: the king used religious events and tones, as Elizabeth II used to do. He also called for being sensitive and kind to other people: "So on this Christmas Day, my heart and my gratitude go out to all who serve one another; to all who care for our common home; and to all who see and seek the good of others, not least a friend we do not yet know. In this way we bring out the best in ourselves."
