King Charles III is set to address the nation in his first Christmas Day speech today.
The King's Speech will be broadcast at 3pm and air on BBC One, BBC Two, ITV and Sky One. The festive speech is expected to honour the late Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8.
Her Majesty delivered the Christmas speech each year since it was first broadcast in 1957. It is the first time a King will have delivered a Christmas speech since King George VI addressed the nation on the radio in 1951.

A royal expert predicts King Charles will use his first speech to make a "solemn" tribute to his mum. Jeremy Archer told OK! : "I’m quite sure he’ll spend as much time talking about his mother as he does about everything else.
"He’ll talk about how positive she was and how inclusive she was. It will be solemn and reflective, but it will show gratitude for her reign, her life and all the things she’s achieved.”
The King's Speech was pre-recorded by His Majesty at Sandringham on December 13. The message will last around 10 minutes as the King will reflect on the events of the past 12 months.
It is not known yet what he will specifically address but the King will likely reflect on major global issues such as Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the cost of living crisis.
