Gathering around the television for Rainha Elizabeth II‘s annual broadcast was a part of Christmas celebrations for many families across the U.K. and around the world — and now, Rei Carlos III will take over the tradition.

This first year, he will feel the pressure to get it right. Every nuance will be picked over,” a former palace staffer tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

In the speech, King Charles will certainly reflect on the death of his mother.

O rei “has huge empathyfor others experiencing loss, says the staffer. “We are so used to seeing the iconic footage of the Queen leading her family to church on Christmas morning,” says the staffer. “This year there will be a great deal of reflection and sorrow.

At Christmas, I am always struck by how the spirit of togetherness lies also at the heart of the Christmas story,” o príncipe de Gales, 40, começou, quoting the monarch’s address from a decade ago. “A young mother and a dutiful father with their baby were joined by poor shepherds and visitors from afar. They came with their gifts to worship the Christ child. From that day on he has inspired people to commit themselves to the best interests of others. This is the time of year when we remember that God sent his only son ‘to serve, not to be served.He restored love and service to the center of our lives in the person of Jesus Christ.

Ele continuou, “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 carol, ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’, ends by asking a question of all of us who know the Christmas story, of how God gave himself to us in humble service: ‘What can I give him, poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; if I were a wise man, I would do my part.The carol gives the answer, ‘Yet what I can I give him – give my heart.’ ”
