Queen listens to KPMG's diversity work on 150th anniversary
The Queen spoke to the accountancy firm on it’s 150 year anniversary. Her Majesty heard about the KPMG UK’s continued efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in the accountancy profession, and spoke to employees from across the UK about their personal stories.
She looked calm and happy speaking with the employees and getting on well with the technology.

Judi James claimed the Queen seemed to be feeling some Christmas cheer, despite the ups and downs of 2020.
Not only has the Queen dealt with the coronavirus in the same way other Britons have, but also her grandson Prince Harry leaving the Royal Family and reports about Prince Andrew following the death of Jeffrey Epstein.

Judi said: “It has been such a difficult year for the Queen on a very personal level and her subsequent re-launch of The Firm and its new line-up must have been every bit as tumultuous backstage as some of the boardroom re-shuffles we see in big City companies like KPMG so it’s good to see her in full holiday mode again here, in her classic and cosy-looking cardigan plus some un-royal and very meaningful-looking beads hanging around her neck, as she chats to members of the financial and accountancy company via her laptop.”
After a year of social distancing the Queen appears to be a pro with video calls now.
Judi went on: “Unlike many of us who are suffering from video-chat exhaustion, the Queen’s smile suggests she is still delighted by the new technology.
“She is no slouch when it comes to the best use of video conferencing either.

“As she chats and listens we can see her eyes moving about the screen in an even order, ensuring she keeps everyone engaged and included in the conversation.
“We saw the Queen in strong leadership mode with her closest family members and heirs after the Cambridge’s rail tour of the UK and here we can see her hosting and quietly leading this conference with business leaders.”
The Queen was out in public last week in Windsor.
She watched the Salvation Army band on the quadrangle with Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of York, Prince William and Kate and Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Prince Edward.
Despite the cold, Her Majesty displayed all the regal poise the public have come to expert from her over the years.
Judi dubbed it “hugely impressive to watch.”
She went on: “It’s fascinating to see how the Queen is still emphatically still the undisputed head of the royal Firm, with that status looking not just titular but also physically visible, which is a remarkable feat at her age.
“Dressed in striking and very confident scarlet here, the Queen stands alone, with both her outfit and the space around her signaling high levels of power.”
This year the Queen will spend Christmas alone with Philip at Windsor Castle.
Usually, the royals gather together at Sandringham.
However, due to COVID-19 this gathering will not be going ahead.
The Queen and Prince Philip have been sheltering at Windsor Castle throughout the pandemic.
