I love the way the Royal Family appears to adhere to tradition and still be a trend setter. Despite being saddled with ancient traditions and protocol, back in the late 1700s they were the first of British families to bring a Christmas tree indoors from the outdoors and decorate it lavishly. The Queen's crown includes 4 pearls from Queen Elizabeth I's crown. Now that is history.
But time doesn't stand still.
The Monarchy has launched The Royal Channel, their very own YouTube Channel. You can watch all the Christmas Day messages (including this year which will go up as soon as it is broadcast live).
Her Majesty is so hip!
