Britain’s reigning monarch, King Charles III, has utilized his second Christmas address to advocate for compassion amidst the ongoing global conflicts.
The monarch speech comes in the wake of the ongoing intense turmoil in Gaza due to the conflict between Israel and Hamas, and the persisting Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The King in his address emphasized the importance of empathy and understanding in these troubled times.
“At a time of increasingly tragic conflict around the world, I pray that we can also do all in our power to protect each other,” Charles said.
“The words of Jesus seem more than ever relevant: ‘do to others as you would have them do to you.’”
He told the nation and Commonwealth that after his decades of environmental campaigning, he took “great inspiration” at seeing “a growing awareness of how we must protect the Earth and our natural world as the one home we all share.”
