The Queen has instructed her staff to get her an iPad 2 after being shown the Apple tablet according to The Sun newspaper. Prince William and Harry took theirs along to Buckingham Palace and gave The Queen a crash course and she was immediately hooked.

According to a royal insider, The Queen, who is now 85 years old, was said to be very impressed and particularly with how easy it was to use.

"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."

This of course will not be the first Apple product that The Queen will own, she already has at least one iPod; one of which was recently given to her by President Barack Obama.

How long will it be before we see The Queen signing up for the TiPb forums and getting her jailbreak on? Well you never know!
