Merry Christmas from me and the Queen

I have to confess that I’ve never been much for the whole Queen thing (the monarch, not the rock band) and never paid much attention to Her Majesty’s regular Christmas morning addresses, but I think it’s kind of cool that the Royal Family has a YouTube channel now — and that it’s the 50th anniversary of the first televised address by the Queen. So I thought I would link to the 1957 version, in which Her Majesty talks about this newfangled thing called the television, and how it enables people to connect over long distances (there’s a transcript here). Just one thing about the YouTube videos though, Liz: not letting people embed them is kind of rude. Just FYI.
