Buckingham Palace said the Queen thought the broadcast was "absolutely lovely". In a statement it added:
"We wanted to do something a bit different and special in this Jubilee year, so doing it for the first time in 3D seemed a good thing, technology-wise, to do. The Queen agreed straight away there was no need for convincing at all, she was absolutely ready to embrace something new in this year."
The message will be transmitted on both television, radio and online at 3pm on Christmas Day.
The Queen's Christmas Day message, filmed in 3D for the first time, focuses on "service, achievement and the spirit of togetherness."
The Queen will use her Christmas Day message to pay tribute to the nation's athletes for delivering a "splendid summer of sport".
