I just got my iPad. I think it was supposed to be the Queen's, as on the back it is engraved: Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense. I wonder if she'll get the really great applet for Facebook: Flipboard. When I first opened it - the Queen's picture was the first thing that came up (from the Court Circular Page).

@ Princess Kami- Maybe you did get the Queen's Ipad, but I doubt it, because hers would be going to BP, and it would be hard for the postman to not know where BP is!
Why is The Queen getting an Ipad world news?

It shows that despite being 85 she is up to date with modern inventions.

It also shows other elderly people that it isn't impossible for them to keep up to date with technology.

So it is both informative and inspiring.

FEI An English size 5 is equiv. to North American size 7, so her feetsies are average sized.

What a cute pic!
Somehow I knew that the Queen did not give up riding. Nice to see her doing something she loves with her grandkids.

This is a pony not a horse.

She isn't riding horses any more but that doesn't mean that she can't ride the less taxing ponies.

They are both wonders. I probably won't be able to get out of a chair when I'm that age.

What a beautiful photo! They all look so lovely. A small detail but I love the way the Queen is holding the reign of James' pony, so attentive.
