The Queen is celebrating Christmas with members of her family at Sandringham, having recorded a reflective Christmas message earlier this month.
She will talk about the need to pause for reflection as she looks back on the birth of her first great-grandson, Prince George, and the 60th anniversary of her coronation.
The message will be broadcast on both television and radio at 1500 GMT.
