The late Queen gave the sweetest response to a little boy from Malaysia when he asked Her Majesty if she believed in Father Christmas.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II passed away on 8th September 2022 at the age of 96-years-old, and while she is no longer with us, the late Monarch has managed to warm our hearts once again.
In an old video which recently resurfaced on social media, the Queen can be seen being asked whether she believes in Santa Claus.
The question was asked by a young boy from Malaysia who confidently, back in 1989, questioned the Queen over her belief in Father Christmas.
In the short but sweet clip, which was included in the Queen's Christmas message that year, the young boy asks the Monarch about her travels before going on to pop the big Christmas question.

He can be heard saying: "Do you believe in Father Christmas?", to which to Queen replied: "I like to believe in Father Christmas, yes."
She couldn't have been any sweeter! Also, she came up with a very clever way to answer the question without lying to the young boy.
In 1989, the year the video was made, the Queen gave her Christmas speech to the nation from The Royal Albert Hall for the first and only time. It is believed for the occasion there were around 2,000 children visiting as part of a Save The Children Fund campaign.
One person commented on the resurfaced video: "His bright little face. He’s so thrilled to be talking to Her Majesty. She’s wonderful."
Another wrote: "You can tell she’s such a wonderful grandmother", while a third posted: "You really can't help but love her."
