Watching the Queen's Speech, which has been televised at 3 p.m. on Christmas Day for 50 years, is an integral part of the holiday for most British people. Many of my friends can recall hurrying to finish Christmas lunch, year after year, so that the whole family could gather round the "telly" to watch the Queen.

This year, the Royal Family has joined the YouTube generation and, demonstrating what a hip octogenarian she is, for the first time Queen Elizabeth II has broadcast her speech on YouTube. Cool. The speech is framed with excerpts from that first speech in 1957.

Inveterate Royal watchers can keep up with news and pictures of the Queen and other Royals by tuning into The Royal Channel on YouTube throughout the year.
