Queen Rania's Channel on YouTube

The Queen of Jordan has her own channel on YouTube
Dedicated to breaking down stereotypes about the Arab and Muslim worlds and to bridging the East-West divide, this is Queen Rania's official YouTube Channel.
According to Wikipedia:
The video sharing website decided to honor the Queen with the first ever YouTube Visionary Award at YouTube Live on November 22, 2008. The award was presented by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who said the Queen was being honored because of her "use of technology to instigate social change".

This video of the award ceremony is well worth watching:
