Queen’s speech on Christmas Day goes 3D

The Queen’s speech on Christmas Day will be broadcast to the nation in 3D, with the monarch describing the recording as “absolutely lovely”, according to a Buckingham Palace spokesperson.

It is a sign of the popularity of this enhanced visual experience that people in broadcast jobs were brought in to help make the video, which was recorded on December 7th and will be shown at 15:00 on December 25th, reports huffingtonpost.co.uk.

The speech will be screened in high definition and standard definition on television, as well as on the radio. For people who want to watch it online, the video will also be uploaded to the Royal Channel on YouTube.

According to telegraph.co.uk, the monarch has used this year’s address to focus on service, achievement and togetherness; with the London 2012 Olympic Games being a touchpoint for this message.

In the speech, Queen Elizabeth will say: “As London hosted a splendid summer of sport, all those who saw the achievement and courage at the Olympic and Paralympic Games were further inspired by the skill, dedication, training and teamwork of our athletes. In pursuing their own sporting goals, they gave the rest of us the opportunity to share something of the excitement and drama.”

It is the first time the speech has ever been broadcast in 3D.
