Antony Savvas

The royal family's official website has been relaunched with new features for the public to take advantage of.

The first official royal site was launched in 1997. An estimated 250,000 visitors view the site every week.

A palace event to launch the site revamp was expected to be attended by world wide web inventor Tim Berners-Lee. Tim Berners-Lee planned to say a few words to the invited audience to celebrate the upgrade.

The expanded site will include online palace vacancies. Google maps illustrate the Queen's visits. There is a section on the royal pets, including the Queen's corgis.

There is also a link to the royal family's YouTube channel.

The archive section has also been extended to include unseen royal photographs and personal correspondence.
