Queen Elizabeth Joins iPod Generation

Not even the Queen is immune to the allure of the iPod, according to British daily The Sun. The paper reported on Friday that Queen Elizabeth II had authorized the purchase of a 6GB silver iPod Mini. According to a royal insider, "the Queen loves music and was impressed by how small and handy the iPod is."

The paper said Prince Andrew was likely behind the purchase, having bought the Queen a cell phone in 2001. The Queen will likely not download music from iTunes onto the player, but will have one of the courtiers assist her in selecting music. "Prince Andrew will probably also help out because he's a real dab hand with gadgets."
