The Queen’s traditional annual speech to the nation on Christmas Day has been shot in 3D for the first time, it has been announced.
Sky used specialist 3D cameras to film the Queen in early December. She is expected to mention the success of the London Olympic Games and her Diamond Jubilee, which took place earlier this year.
BBC and ITV have also been granted rights to broadcast the speech, which will be aired on 25 December.
The Queen gave her first Christmas speech over the radio in 1952 and her first television speech in 1956.
Last year, nearly 9 million viewers across the UK tuned in to watch the Queen’s Christmas message. This year, the viewing figures are likely to be much higher, thanks in part to the new 3D format.
