Queen Elizabeth II and her gold piano more or less ruined the annual Christmas message that is delivered to the British people.

The 92-year-old queen sat in Buckingham Palace, and she delivered a speech where she spoke about the wisdom that comes with age.

She also praised her grandchildren's contributions to the royal family.

The world's longest-reigning living monarch paid tribute to her military personnel and prayed for world peace in her message.

But through the many changes, I have seen over the years: faith, family, and friendship have been not only a constant for me but a source of personal comfort and reassurance."

However, the queen's words bared no weight because social media was solely focused on her decision to flaunt her massive half-billion dollar wealth, (according to

Famous British actors, public figures, and well-known reporters bashed the queen.

Kevin Maguire wrote a scattering tweet that said: "Privileged wealthy hereditary monarch bunged £76m a year, sitting in front of a golden piano in the palace she's billing taxpayers £369m to tart up, kills satire by lecturing the nation to pull together."

James Dornan brought up those who are homeless or in need while the royals live lavishly.

So to cheer them up I suggest we gather around my gold piano with a rendition of My Old Man’s a Dustman. That’ll take their mind off the cold and hunger for a while. Do you see how hard being Queen is now?”

The controversial gold piano is part of the Royal Collection that is made off over a million objects.
