Royal Fans Left With 'Tears In Eyes' Over Queen's Answer To Child's Santa Question

An adorable clip of the Queen telling a young boy that she "like[s] to believe in Father Christmas" has blown up on Twitter - and we simply can't get over it.

The short video, which was taken from the 1989 Christmas message, shows Her Majesty chatting to a group of children at a Christmas-clad Royal Albert Hall.

Despite this, the clear focus of everyone's attention was on the 'confident' little boy, who questioned the Queen about her recent travels before turning her attention to the seasonal staple.

The Queen's Christmas Message has been a household staple since 1952 - with the first TV speech broadcasted on Christmas 1957.

The 1989 speech was a particularly special one, as this was the first (and only) to be held at The Royal Albert Hall. The Queen's daughter, Princess Anne, was also in attendance.

It's reported that 2,000 children were present at the event, organised by The Save The Children Fund.

During the viral video, the Queen could be seen meeting several star-struck children at the end of her speech. Having asked one of the boys where he was from, he replied: "I'm from Malaysia".

Seemingly eager to get to the tougher questions after making small talk, he finally asked what we'd all wanted to hear. "Do you believe in Father Christmas?" he said.

"I like to believe in Father Christmas, yes," The Queen replied. Our hearts!

It seems people on Twitter can't get enough of it, either!

Several users commented on the little boy's face lighting up as soon as his suspicions were confirmed - the Queen does, in fact, believe in Father Christmas. "His bright little face," one said. "He's so thrilled to be talking to Her Majesty".

Another admitted the exchange bought a "tear to [their] eye, knowing that the Queen's reign will not last forever".
