The Queen visits Google

Internet, Websites

queen-elizabeth-ii-visits-google.jpgVisiting today, you’ll see a particular celebrity adorning the logo – Queen Elizabeth II. Her Royal Highness is visiting Google UK today and, along with Prince Phillip, will be meeting staff, competition winners, and selected YouTube users. She’ll be shown demonstrations of Google’s technology, as well as meeting local schoolchildren who’ve been designing new Google logos.

The Queen’s no stranger to technology. She first sent an email in 1976(!) while visiting an army base, launched a royal website in 1997, and last year opened a YouTube channel. She also now issues the Queen’s Speech as a podcast. Not bad for an octogenarian.
