Prince Charles Calls Queen Elizabeth ‘Mummy’ In Special Jubilee Speech – British Royal Family

You don’t get to see this very often, but Prince Charles got to wear his heart on his sleeve. Prince Charles called his mother Queen Elizabeth ‘mummy’ after thanking her for 70 years of duty in his Jubilee speech. Here’s what you need to know.

According to new reports, the Prince of Wales has paid a touching tribute to his mother and thanked her for being “there for us these 70 years” at the spectacular Jubilee concert outside Buckingham Palace. Prince Charles told the crowd of tens of thousands of the Queen’s “immense regret” that she couldn’t be present at the star-studded concert on Saturday night – but told the public they were the reason she “gets up every morning.”

The future king spoke of his “much missed” late father the Duke of Edinburgh, calling him “My Papa” and told the Queen her “strength and stay” was joining in the celebrations “in spirit.”

Charles, who began his heartfelt speech with “Your Majesty, Mummy” just as he did at the Diamond and Golden Jubilee pop concerts, told the Queen: “You have been with us in our difficult times. And you bring us together to celebrate moments of pride, joy and happiness.” Charles’ biggest tribute was paid to the Queen’s pledge to serve her whole life, with photos and video of the monarch over the years meeting people around the UK and around the world.

He added, “You have met us and talked with us. You laugh and cry with us and, most importantly, you have been there for us, for these 70 years. You pledged to serve your whole life, you continue to deliver. That is why were here, that is what we celebrate tonight. On behalf of us all, I wanted to pay my own tribute to your lifetime of selfless service.”

His speech came right after Prince William’s, who paid tribute to his grandmother’s “optimism” and praised her for her “hope” for the future of the planet, along with a nod to his father and grandfather’s environmental efforts. Prince William used his tribute to his grandmother to raise awareness of environmental issues and echoed the Queen’s words from her speech to the Cop26 UN Climate Change summit, when she said working together in a “common cause” always gave rise to hope.
