Queen Elizabeth Welcomes Prince George In Annual Christmas Speech
When Queen Elizabeth’s speech aired on Christmas Day, the reigning British monarch made reference to the new addition to the royal family – her great-grandson Prince George.

“Here at home my own family is a little larger this Christmas,” the Queen said, adding, “As so many of you will know, the arrival of a baby gives everyone the chance to contemplate the future with renewed happiness and hope. For the new parents, life will never be quite the same again."
While the Queen’s words were heard, the broadcast showed footage of Prince George with his father Prince William and mother Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. The footage was from the christening of the Queen’s grandson in October at the Chapel Royal, St. James Place.
"As with all who are christened, George was baptized into a joyful faith of Christian duty and service," said Queen Elizabeth. "After the christening, we gathered for the traditional photograph. It was a happy occasion, bringing together four generations."
When the royal family made their walk from Sandringham House to St. Mary Magdalene for Christmas Day service, thousands turned out to watch them pass. One of the bystanders, Cicely Howard, managed to catch the attention of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and ask about their son. "[Middleton] told me he was having a lovely day but was more interested in the wrapping paper than the presents," Howard told The Guardian. She also said that the Prince told the crowd, "We've had a good morning with George and I can't wait until next year when he's bigger."
