As any British subject knows, there is a grand and glorious tradition of listening to the Queen’s Christmas Message on Christmas day. The tradition of the Royal Christmas Message began in 1932, with King George V. Queen Elizabeth II gave her first Royal Christmas Message in 1952, and the people of the United Kingdom have looked forward to the Queen’s Christmas Message every Christmas since. For the math challenged, that’s more than 50 years of Christmas messages that have been delivered by Queen Elizabeth II.

Every Christmas at 3:00 p.m., millions of people tune in to hear the Queen deliver her Christmas message. Talk to any British person of a certain age, and they will tell you that they well emember sitting at the radio or television on Christmas afternoon, eagerly awaiting the Queen’s message (whether because they enjoyed it, or because they were not allowed to open Christmas gifts until it was over, is another matter).


But this year there is a new and modern twist.

This year the Queen will not only be broadcasting her message by radio and television, but will also be making it available as a podcast. And, in fact, you can sign up right now, in advance, and have the Queen’s Christmas podcast delivered right to your door – er – iPod or other MP3 playing device – as soon as it is available.

Explains the Royal British Family website, “The latest ‘episode’ of the Royal Podcast will be the Christmas Broacast (The Queen’s speech), which will be available from 1500 GMT on Christmas Day 2006… Once you have subscribed, the latest podcast will automatically be made available to you from your podcast software, and can be downloaded onto your mp3 player if you wish.”

  1. “This year, the Queen of England” This is akin to saying, The “President of Texas” was happily making war today!
    “of England” and “of Texas” while technically correct, really make smaller both “Titles” “The British Queen” would be more correct, as would “The US President”
