YouTube Royal Channel

The popularity of the video-sharing website YouTube has prompted the Queen herself to jump on the bandwagon. Launched at the end of December, the Royal Channel (youtube.com/theroyalchannel) contains archival footage of the Queen's 1957 Christmas address as a celebration of 50 years of televised addresses. As well, the 2007 Christmas address was posted on the Royal Channel simultaneously with the televised broadcast. Besides addresses, the British Film Institute has provided archival footage such as Lord John Wakehurst's film Long to Reign Over Us, which includes the Queen's ascension and coronation. Other clips include royal weddings and royal visits. God Save the Queen's footage.
