A True, Blue 21st-Century Queen

Alert all the media: the Queen (there is only one, really) today visited the offices of Google, in London. Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, Her Majesty was introduced to software engineers, senior managers, and a host of other staff that keep the world’s most popular internet search site running. When the royal party were shown a You Tube clip of a baby with an infectious laugh they were reduced to giggles by the footage. Said the Queen: “We are amused.” Said Nikesh Arora, president of Google Europe, Middle East and Africa, who showed the Queen around: “She did seem very very interested in everything going on. She has used YouTube and has her own Royal Channel and understands what our products are about.” Of course she did: she may be 82 but she plays video games with Prince William!!
