London, Sep 11: British Queen Elizabeth II is all set to visit Internet search giant Google to meet the staff who created the Royal channel on the video-sharing website YouTube, which allows users to upload and share video clips.
The main purpose behind Her Majesty's visit is said to be her decision to upgrade the Buckingham Palace website, so that it boasts more video footage and becomes more user friendly. "During her reign the Queen has always kept up to date with the latest technology. The visit to Google is another example and shows how willing she is to embrace new technology and change," the Telegraph quoted a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman as saying.
The Queen had confessed that she had never used a computer when she conferred an honorary knighthood on Microsoft founder Bill Gates in 2005.
However, these days, she writes all her own emails, has a mobile phone, and sends text messages.
Last year, she was presented with an iPod by Prince William, a Facebook fan, on which she reportedly stores Last Night of the Proms. There is an internet cafe at Buckingham Palace.
The Queen will be accompanied to Google by the Duke of Edinburgh who at 87 is also one of the most technically aware members of the Royal Family.
