Since 1957, the monarch has issued a yearly Christmas message to people in the United Kingdom and around the world. Fifty years ago this Christmas, Queen Elizabeth II's message was televised for the first time. This Christmas, the British Monarchy is embracing another new technology by launching The Royal Channel on YouTube. The first 1957 broadcast is also available on The Royal Channel, along with other rare and previously unreleased archive footage. At around 3pm BST on Christmas Day, this year's Christmas broadcast from the Queen will appear on YouTube as well as on television. Google does it again.
