An unnamed "royal insider" tells The Sun that Queen Elizabeth has asked for her own iPad.

Princes William and Harry allegedly showed their own iPads to the monarch, and the tablet piqued her interest.

The Sun's source said the Queen "hadn't seen anything like the iPad before. She was very impressed. [...] She was particularly taken with how easy it was to use, the large screen and how light it was."

If the rumors are true, Queen Elizabeth would be adding to her repertoire of Apple products--she already owns at least one iPod, a gift from President Obama in 2009.

The source added that the Princes think it is "hilarious" that their grandmother wants her own iPad--"They love the fact that their gran wants an iPad and think she's really cool."

If Queen Elizabeth really is getting an iPad, what apps should she use? Let us know what you think below.
