I was watching HM Queen Elizabeth II’s Christmas address and suddenly it struck me why she is so appealing in these yearly statements. She was talking about something which everyone takes for granted as if she had just discovered it for the very first time. It gives the listener a remarkable sense of “having one up on Her Majesty”. This evening, she was extolling the virtues of quiet contemplation and recommending that pastime to the listener as if she had just now tried a bit of it and found it to be just the ticket for a busy sovereign at Yuletide.
