Rue Brittania


It must be nice to be the richest woman in the world. The things the queen must decide include who gets knighted.

The latest is London-born Jonathan Ive, 38, Apple's senior vice president of design. She gave him the title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE). That's because he was in charge of the team which made the iPod, the iMac, iBook and Powerbook computer lines in at Cupertino, California.

Guess what Queenie got for Christmas? Yeah, a pink one. Must be nice to be Monarch of the world's most frivolous monarchy.

    What's frivolous about the British monarchy. She's still got an Empire to look after, albeit a smaller one nowadays. :)
