Nintendo’s Wii console appeals to people of all ages and classes, but the UK newspaper, The People, reported that the “Qwiin” herself (who is 81 years of age) is “hooked on Prince William’s” console. The console which was bought by William’s girlfriend Kate Middleton for Christmas.
A Palace source told The People: “When she saw William playing a game after lunch at Sandringham she thought the Nintendo looked tremendous fun and begged to join in. She played a simple ten-pin bowling game and by all accounts was a natural. It was hilarious. William was in fits of laughter. He was enormously impressed at having such a cool gran. And although she is 81 the Queen’s hand-eye co-ordination was as good as somebody half her age.”
