The Queen's Favourite Movie To Watch At Christmas Has Been Revealed

We all have our Christmas traditions - including the Royal family.

But while some of us guzzle wine, feast on chocolates and have a big, old-fashioned family row, Her Majesty and co do things a little differently (as you imagine).

And while this year may be looking different for many people (we can thank the coronavirus pandemic for that), there are some traditions we can keep hold of - settling down to our favourite Christmas film, for example.

Some may opt for Home Alone, Elf or even Bridget Jones' Diary - but Queen Elizabeth herself plumps for a more rogue choice.

Yep, Her Maj makes sure she catches 80's cult classic sci-fi adventure Flash Gordon - starring Brian Blessed.

The news comes straight from Brian himself, who played Prince Vultan in the kooky classic. For those who have yet to see the slightly-before-our-time film, Flash Gordon follows football player Flash who travels to the planet Mongo only to battle the savage Ming the Merciless to save the planet.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies, 83-year-old Brian explained: "The Queen, [Flash Gordon] is her favourite film, she watches it with her grandchildren every Christmas."

He then went on to impersonate the Queen, saying: "You know, we watch Flash Gordon all the time, me and the grandchildren. And if you don't mind, I've got the grandchildren here, would you mind saying 'Gordon's alive'?"

Much like everyone else's Christmas, the Queen's festive plans have changed from the norm.

Instead of having a big family gathering with the extended royals in Sandringham, Queen Elizabeth will be staying in Windsor Castle alongside husband Prince Philip.

The pair have been isolating together in the castle ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are also uncertain about how they will be spending Christmas.

On a three day tour of the UK, William told Cardiff University students: "It is so difficult. We are still trying to make plans.
