Queen Launches YouTube Channel
The channel bears the official title, "The Royal Channel-The Official Channel of the British Monarchy", and displays a photo of Buckingham Palace and the Queen's Guards. It went live shortly after midnight, according to BBC.
"I very much hope that this new medium will make my Christmas message more personal and direct," the Queen said. "That it is possible for some of you to see me today is just another example of the speed at which things are changing all around us." The channel will feature clips from garden parties, state visits, prime ministers, investitures and a day in the life of Charles, Prince of Wales.
