London - She has never shied away from using the latest technology for her Christmas message.

And this year viewers will be able to watch the Queen’s speech in 3D.

She recorded the message at Buckingham Palace in the new format on Friday – becoming the first Royal to use the technology.

Audiences will need a television with 3D technology built in, which requires viewers to wear special glasses to achieve the full effect.

The Queen is expected to speak about the positive impact on the nation of the London Olympics and her Diamond Jubilee.

She made her first Christmas radio message in 1952 and her first live television speech in 1957. - Daily Mail
