How the Queen became very well connected

The Queen has taken a bold stride into cyberspace by launching her own channel on the video-sharing website YouTube. The Royal Channel launched as Buckingham Palace seeks to promote Britain’s monarch to a youthful global audience.While aides were utterly convinced it was the way forward, the 81-year-old Queen – who only recently mastered emailing and had never used a personal computer until two years ago – was not immediately acquainted with the YouTube phenomenon. But after the concept was explained to her by, among others, her granddaughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie – both avid Facebook fans – she personally approved the channel’s go-ahead after viewing its contents.
