Canada’s Head of State Wants an iPad After Being Impressed by One

by on May 9th, 2011

A report by The Sun states that Queen Elizabeth wants an iPad, and has ordered her staff to acquire one after being dazzled by the device. Her grandsons Prince William and Harry showed her how easy it was to use an iPad at Buckingham Palace–now she wants her own.

According to a royal insider:

“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…The Princes think it is hilarious. They love the fact that their gran wants an iPad and think she’s really cool.”

The Queen already has an iPod, so it’s now time for her to take a giant leap forward with an iPad. The next big questions: will Canadians be footing the bill, and will she get black or white? ;)

    i don’t see why Canadians will have to pay for it, Canada only pay the cost of a visit, in Canada. One document away from removing the queen, she is only a symbol at this point. Shame on you for not knowing. Also English tax payers do not pay for personal items for the royals the taxes the queen pays, is way more then the small amount the government pays to her for making official appearances (civil list).

    Canada’s Head of State, is still the Queen. When she can’t be here, the
    Governor General performs duties on her behalf. ‘Shame on you’ for not
    knowing this.

    Obviously Canadians wouldn’t be paying for this, that was a ‘joke (note the
    wink at the end).

    thought that was for the black or white lol. I know she is the head of state, but really has no say in any national policies, i was commenting on the tax thing. I do think its funny how the quote thinks she is “switched on” considering she has only now discovered the iPad. I have see people her age use iPads at Starbucks and find it quite refreshing, some even use bluetooth lol.

    Who is going to sync it? Is there going to be a Royal Edition? Will Big Beg replace the clock?

    RIM is going to be jelous. Harper will need to convince her to get a Playbook:)
