During his video message, Charles praised the efforts of the armed forces, saying: "As we near the end of this most extraordinary and difficult of years, I particularly wanted to pay tribute to each and every one of you, and your families, for your continued service, dedication to duty and sacrifice.

"You set us all a remarkable example for which you are owed immense gratitude."

He also recognised that during this year many service personnel have experienced longer spells of being separated from their families, and extended periods of isolation and deployment.

Charles added: "This exemplary commitment to public service is a real hallmark of our armed forces and provides a distinct sense of reassurance to our nation, which is greatly appreciated, I can assure you."

During the festive period 6,400 servicemen and women will be deployed on 39 operations across 46 countries. Thousands of personnel will also be deployed and held at high readiness at home this Christmas, as part of UK resilience operations.
