AFP reports that HM The Queen has joined the portable digital music revolution and invested in an Apple iPod:
Queen Elizabeth II has dipped into the royal purse to snap up an iPod.
The Sun said the 79-year-old sovereign had bought a six-gigabyte silver model for 169 pounds.
The pocket-sized digital music players can hold up to 10,000 downloaded songs.
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 tabloid on Friday.
"Obviously it is quite complicated to download songs, but I'm sure one of the courtiers will do it for her.
"Prince Andrew will probably also help out because he's a real dab hand with gadgets."
The newspaper suggested Abba's "Dancing Queen" and "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears might be on the royal iPod.
