Queen Elizabeth II
Britain's has bought an iPod, according to a report published by The Sun. Britain's biggest-selling daily said the 79-year-old sovereign had bought a six-gigabyte silver model for 169 pounds (255 euros, 310 dollars). Queen Elizabeth's second son Prince Andrew, fourth in line to the throne, was reported to be behind the move, having bought his mother a mobile phone and taught her how to use it in 2001. "The Queen loves music and was impressed by how small and handy the iPod is," a royal insider told The Sun. "Obviously it is quite complicated to download songs, but I'm sure one of the courtiers will do it for her."
