A humble Queen Elizabeth has used her annual Christmas address to thank everyone who helped make her 'Diamond Jubilee' year one to remember.
This year's traditional speech took on a modern twist, the Queen becoming the first royal to appear in 3D format.
In her pre-recorded Christmas message the 86-year-old paid tribute to volunteers, who gave up their time to make the London Olympics and Paralympics a success.
She also praised the athletes, for inspiring everyone who watched their achievements.
Special mention was made of those serving in the armed forces and emergency services, as grandson Prince Harry continues to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan as a British Army apache helicopter co-pilot.
The Queen spoke of the spirit of togetherness during the holiday season, before reminding everyone about the true meaning of Christmas.
'It is my prayer this Christmas Day that his example and teaching will continue to bring people together to give the best of themselves in the service of others,' the Queen said of Jesus Christ.
'I wish you all a very happy Christmas.'
