“The Queen has ordered staff to buy her an iPad – after being wowed by her grandsons’ gadgets,” Alex Peake reports for The Sun.
“Princes Wills and Harry gave her a crash course in how the touchscreen tablets work when they took theirs along to Buckingham Palace,” Peake reports. “The 85-year-old monarch will be able to browse the internet, watch music, play games and download apps.”
Peake reports, “A royal insider said: “The Queen hadn’t seen anything like the iPad before. She was very impressed. ‘She was particularly taken with how easy it was to use, the large screen and how light it was. For a woman of her age, she is very switched on. It was only a matter of time before she asked someone to go and get her one.’ They added: ‘The Princes think it is hilarious. They love the fact that their gran wants an iPad and think she’s really cool.’ The Queen is a big fan of Apple gadgets and already owns at least two iPods.”
