British Queen Offers Christmas Broadcast As Vlog, Podcast

Queen of EnglandBack in 1957, when the British Queen delivered her first television message, she acknowledged the need to adapt to changing times.

“I very much hope that this new medium will make my Christmas message more personal and direct,” she said from her Sandringham estate in Norfolk. “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.”

Fortunately, the Queen has kept up with the times, and her 2007 Christmas message will not only be available via Àú on YouTube, but via the Royal Podcast.

The Royal Channel on YouTube features nearly a century of historical footage related to the Monarchy. The Christmas Broadcast or ‘Queen’s Speech’ for 2007 will appear on The Royal Channel at approximately 3pm GMT on Christmas Day.

Subscribers to the Royal Podcast will get an audio version of the speech. You can subscribe to the Podcast using the Royal Podcast Feed:

    Please could you change the title to “British Queen”
    Calling her just “Queen of England” is inaccurate and leaves out the other parts of Britain she’s monarch of (Scotand, Wales etc)

    I’d much prefer a republic myself, but as long as we have a monarchy she’s my Queen as well! (Scottish) and you’re leaving me out 🙁

    Is this a sign that the Old Media (newspapers and tv) are giving way to the New Media (podcasts and Youtube, etc)?
