King Charles broadcast his festive message not far from where his dear mother, and much-loved father, had been laid to rest at Windsor Castle.
The King's speech acknowledged now is a "time of great hardship" for Brits amid the cost-of-living crisis.
The last 69 speeches had been made by the late Queen, and this was a historic moment for Charles.
The King and Queen Consort hosted one of the biggest royal festive gatherings in years on Christmas Day.
Charles and Camilla invited large numbers of those dubbed “The Loyal Family” for their first Christmas Day since the death of the Queen.
Camilla had her son Tom Parker Bowles, 47, and daughter Laura Lopes, 44, at the table for a royal Christmas dinner for the first time.
After the festive season, the King flew to Scotland on New Year's Day after he was seen for the first time since making his emotional Christmas speech.
The Monarch, 74, and Queen Camilla were spotted giving New Year wishes to a crowd of royal fans as they arrived at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk.
As they made their way along the road to the chapel, Charles and Camilla stopped to chat with well-wishers.
