Queen to take over Prince William and Kate’s YouTube account to share Jubilee highlights


The BBC may not be used to film sit-down interviews for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, according to a royal expert.

Neil Sean discussed the possibility of using the Duke and Duchess’ own channel on his YouTube.

Mr Sean said: “Now as we know, all major channels will be invited at some point to certain points of the celebrations.

“But the biggest things that really make these sort of events you need are the sit-down interviews, the chats.

“As we’ve seen, Prince William and of course Catherine have made a huge success of their own digital YouTube channel. And I mean really big, a huge success.

“A very good source of the palace tells me this, that basically William and Catherine feel that this is the most succinct way of getting out their messages so that basically, they send out their own messages which have proven very successful in the past.

He added: “Now, not only that, but William and Catherine are great influences, as you can imagine, on His Royal Highness Prince Charles, and of course Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

“Now this is because whatever message they put out on their channel, it’s their time, their editing, and they have far more control. It does make perfect sense.

“When this is fed back to the BBC, it’ll rock them.

“Somewhere like the British Broadcasting Corporation – when you think about the battle with Martin Bashir, the ongoing battle with Prince Harry about the name of Lilibet and all that sort of stuff – they have a very much tarnished image right now.

“If you can think about this, the Royals themselves must be looking at ways to connect in the 21st century with people that actually want to hear from them in the time slots that they want to tune in. Not, of course, when the BBC decide, and what they want to cover, as we saw in that documentary.”

There will be year-long Platinum Jubilee celebrations throughout the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth, and around the world as communities come together to celebrate The Queen’s historic 70-year-reign.

In 2022, The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.

This marks seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 when she was 25 years old.

There will be an extra bank holiday, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June.
