HRH-Tube

In a first for the British monarchy - and perhaps kings and queens everywhere - Queen Elizabeth II has posted her 2007 Christmas Message on YouTube. The religious tone may not be for everyone, but that fact that this tradition-bound establishment now has its own channel on YouTube is quite something.

Now, I don't imagine HRH posted the video herself, but her handlers did. She probably doesn't have email either. QEII@hotmail.com? I doubt it.

Nonetheless, quite a change for a Queen who 10 years ago was tone deaf to public reaction over Princess Diana's death.

  1. Not so quick to judge:

    The Queen sent her first email in 1976. See fact #53.

    You can also email The Queen through this web site.
