Queen Elizabeth II Launches Her Own YouTube Channel


She may be Britain's oldest queen, but Queen Elizabeth II sure knows how to keep up with younger generations. Following in the footsteps of television queen Oprah, Queen Elizabeth, who recently turned 81, has launched her own Royal Channel on YouTube.

She used the new channel to send out her 50th annual televised Christmas message on Dec. 25. USA Today reports on a statement they received from Buckingham Palace.

"The queen always keeps abreast with new ways of communicating with people. The Christmas message was podcast last year...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."

While the channel is a tad behind the times (the creator disabled the embed code so people can't share the videos virally on the web) I know I'll be tuning in for glimpses of Prince William.
