The Queen's Speech 2007

Here in the UK, it has been a long tradition on Christmas Day for gathered families when they have finished tucking in to the turkey to watch the recorded annual Christmas Day speech given by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth on TV. It is sort of a ritual for the nation at 3pm sharp. This year, marks the 50th anniversary of this event since the very first television broadcast in 1957, incidentally, coinciding with Malaysia's 50th Independence celebration from British rule.

This year also marks the Palace's coming to grasp with internet technology to issue a simultaneous release of the recorded speech on YouTube.com, which, for those not in the UK, will be able to watch via the world wide web. Kudos to the Palace!
