Queen Elizabeth's Christmas, Brought to You in Royal 3-D

She may have presided over many Christmases past, but Queen Elizabeth proved she's still hip enough for Christmas present.

The queen took her annual Christmas address one step further this year, recording the speech at Buckingham Palace using 3-D technology. The technical innovation comes 80 years after George V began the Christmastime tradition in a speech broadcast over the radio.


Despite having just celebrated her Diamond Jubilee this past June, the queen still shows an interest in modern technology that will hopefully continue with her heirs—we await Prince William's future royal Christmas hologram.
