Elizabeth II: The technological innovation that will allow the Queen to be closer to the British at Christmas

As every year, Queen Elizabeth II will deliver her traditional Christmas address on December 25. For the first time, her message will be available on Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa.

This is what we call a great first! Every year since 1957, Queen Elizabeth II has given a Christmas speech on the afternoon of December 25. Only this year, her traditional speech is being modernized.

In addition to being broadcast on television and radio, the words of the Queen of England will also be available via Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa. Quietly and comfortably from their homes, all those who have them, even beyond the British borders, will be able to listen to the Queen of England.

A beautiful technological novelty

Amazon recently announced that anyone with an Amazon Echo device will be able to listen to Queen Elizabeth II’s speech simply by asking, “Alexa, please deliver the Queen’s Christmas Day message”.

A nice little magic phrase to remember! And even better, since the speech will be available in several languages, namely British English, American English, Australian English, Canadian English as well as Indian varieties.

In a statement, Eric King, Director of Alexa Europe, said: “After a complicated year, millions of people from across the Commonwealth are eagerly awaiting the message from Her Majesty The Queen on Christmas Day”, to iTV.

“By creating this global innovation, just as we did in 2012 with the release of the Queen’s speech on Kindle, we hope that even more people will enjoy Her Majesty’s inspiring words,” he added. Queen Elizabeth II will deliver her speech from Windsor Castle, where she and her husband Prince Philip will spend the holidays this year. See you on December 25 at 4 p.m. French time!
