Queen Elizabeth launches YouTube channel This morning, Britain's 81-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, launched her own special "Royal Channel" on YouTube.
The Queen has said she will use the video sharing site to send out her 50th annual televised Christmas message. Buckingham Palace has also added archive and recent footage of the queen and the royal family to the channel and hopes to add new clips regularly.

"The queen always keeps abreast with new ways of communicating with people,"
Buckingham Palace said in a statement. "The Christmas message was podcast last year."

The palace continued, "She has always been aware of reaching more people and adapting the communication to suit. This will make the Christmas message more accessible to younger people and those in other countries."

The channel has video clips of state visits, garden parties, footage of the queen's 1957 Christmas TV broadcast and even rarely seen silent news footage of the 1923 wedding of the queen's parents, then known as the Duke of York and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon.
