London, Dec 23: Keeping her pace with the modern internet technology, the Britain's oldest monarch Elizabeth II will post her Christmas Day speech on YouTube this year.

A ''Royal Channel'' on YouTube featuring archive and recent footage of the Queen and other Royals went live last night. The move coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Queen's first ever televised Christmas speech, which she delivered live to the nation in 1957. ''The Queen always keeps abreast with new ways of communicating with people.

She has always been aware of reaching more people and adapting the communication to suit,'' the Daily Mail quoted a royal spokesperson as saying.

The royal page, which bears the heading in scarlet letters ''The Royal Channel - The Official Channel of the British Monarchy'', is illustrated with a photo of Buckingham Palace flanked by the Queen's Guards in their tall bearskin hats and red tunics.

Its video clips include shots of garden parties, state visits, the Queen and Prime Ministers, investitures and a day in the life of the Prince of Wales.

YouTube, the video sharing website allows users to upload and share video clips, was founded in 2005 and has become an internet phenomenon.
