After using computers for the past two years, Queen Elizabeth the second has come into the digital age by creating her very own web site.
Her initial attempts were rather poor, but after studying website programming for eighteen months, Liz has created something to be proud of, learning how to embed OnesTube and Google Maps into the site, as well as take advantage of technologies such as Silverlight and Java.
At 164 years of age (thanks to having two birthdays a year), the feat is even more impressive.
The Queen had been given an iPod for one of her birthdays in 2007 by Prince Harry, but had been forced to rely on Harry to download tunes from King, Queen, Prince, Duke Ellington and Whitesnake. As Betty liked none of these bands, she decided to come into the digital age, and bought a PC, rapidly coming to grips with the technology and upgrading twice in a year. With a bundled version of MS FrontPage she created the first Royal web site, but as with all first attempts, it was rubbish, but Beth didn't give up and enrolled on a Web Designer's Course at Windsor Technical College as a mature student.
"One took a short cut," admitted the Queen as she launched the new look site. "One bought a Joomla template, and used that as starting point, it saved one loads of time and is quite wicked. One is currently writing a Flash game called Smite the Royals. Wills loves it."
