Queen Elizabeth II will broadcast her annual Christmas message to Britain and the Commonwealth in 3D television for the first time, Buckingham Palace announced on Thursday.

Exactly 80 years after her grandfather king George V first started broadcasting a speech on December 25, the queen will embrace the new technology to mark her Diamond Jubilee year.

"The Queen's annual Christmas Message will be broadcast in 3D television for the first time," the palace said.
