Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly set to deliver her "most Christian message yet" during her annual Christmas address to the Commonwealth of Nations, and will focus on the "unprecedented" level of persecution against Christians.
The Telegraph reported Sunday that sources say Queen Elizabeth will also focus on her own personal Christian faith, which she has often talked about throughout her 60-plus year reign.

Human rights groups have criticized the U.K. government for "selling out" to China on human rights issues by welcoming President Xi Jinping and clinching a $30 billion economic deal, without bringing up China's crackdown on ethnic and religions minorities, including Christians.
"If the U.K. is going to totally ignore the ever-worsening rights situation that we have at the moment in China, then that will cause a fundamental conflict with its principles as a democratic country," U.S.-based Chinese legal scholar Teng Biao said, according to Radio Free Asia.
Xi held public meetings with British Prime Minister David Cameron, as well as with members of the royal family, during his visit to the U.K. this week. The Chinese president pushed through the multi-billion nuclear power investment deal, and praised economic relations between China and Western powers, such as the U.S. and U.K. more >>
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently condemned the British paparazzi amid concerns that their two children are constantly being subjected to ongoing harassment by photographers.
In a statement released Friday on behalf of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Kensington Palace Communications Secretary Jason Knauf said "a line has been crossed" while issuing a stern warning against the "increasingly extreme lengths" photographers go to get photos of 2-year-old Prince George and 3-month-old Princess Charlotte.
In one example of the alarming tactics employed by the paparazzi, Knauf said one photographer was caught by police just last week in the trunk of a rented vehicle that was parked outside of a children's playground where he has been snapping pictures of the royal heir, who is third in line to the throne. more >>
