The Queen 'watches sci-fi movie Flash Gordon every Christmas' with the Royal Family, actor claims12/12/2020
FROM Love Actually to Elf, we've all got our favourite Christmas movies that we reserve for the special day – and it turns out, The Queen is no different.
According to legendary actor Brian Blessed, Her Majesty is a huge fan of the movie Flash Gordon – which he starred in in 1980.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies earlier this year, the actor, 84, claimed Her Majesty rewatches the sci-fi film every year at Christmas.
He said: "[Flash Gordon] is her favourite film, she watches it with her grandchildren every Christmas."
The sci-fi movie follows the adventures of quarterback Flash as he ventures into space to unite the planet Mongo and save Earth from destruction.
Impersonating The Queen, the actor joked: "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'?"
Sadly, The Queen won't be able to spend the day with all her grandchildren this year – but she has reportedly already chosen her Christmas bubble.
Last month, former Royal butler Paul Burrell revealed that The Queen only eats titchy Christmas dinners.
Appearing on Vicky Pattison's The Secret podcast, Paul said: "[The Queen] only ever eats very little portions. She doesn’t eat a Christmas dinner like we do where it is piled high and you can’t see each other across the table.
