USA Today confirmed, “Video footage of the pudding preparations also was recorded to be broadcast on the afternoon of Christmas Day during the queen’s annual Christmas speech to the nation.”

The queen attended church in Sandringham on Sunday, ahead of the royal family’s traditional Christmas celebrations, which take place in Norfolk rather than London. Prince Philip is currently in a London hospital, and was admitted for two nights as a precautionary measure for a “pre-existing condition.” A statement from Buckingham Palace explained, “The Duke of Edinburgh traveled from Norfolk this morning to the King Edward VII Hospital in London for observation and treatment in relation to a pre-existing condition. The admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness’ Doctor.”
