Queen Elizabeth launches Royal Channel on YouTube
The British Royal family is keeping up with the internets. Yes, their newly established Royal Channel on YouTube will help to deliver both the Queen's annual holiday message as well as other "unique royal video footage to [the] global community". Maybe we'll be able to get Queen Elizabeth to become a member of NowPublic...
"Her Majesty has flagged your story as Good Stuff"
Queen Elizabeth has set up her own channel on the video-sharing website YouTube and will be posting her annual Christmas Day message on the site this year.
Buckingham Palace announced Sunday that the 81-year-old monarch hopes to reach a wider, more diverse audience through YouTube. The new Royal Channel features archival footage of the Royal Family and events involving them.
"The Queen always keeps abreast with new ways of communicating with people," said a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman.
"[She] has seen everything that is going on the new site."
The Queen's message is a hallowed tradition watched by millions of
Britons and others in Commonwealth countries worldwide on Christmas
Day. Last year, her holiday message was released as a podcast.
"We are thrilled to see the British Royal Channel on the site, bringing
some unique royal video footage to our global community," said a
statement released by YouTube.
