Already the recipient of Presidential iPods and box-set DVDs (non-PAL region), the world's most famous monarch can now claim her stake on yet another popular digital past-time- videogames. Specifically, a gold-plated Nintendo Wii, courtesy of publisher THQwhich hopes to lure Her Majesty and her own extended family into a few endless nights of waggle-induced fun.

Encased in gold and accompanied by a copy of the company's latest family-friend release, BIG Family Games, appropriately enough. So says THQ product manager Danielle Robinson of the royal present:

"But we thought that Her Majesty the Queen wouldn't want to play on any old console, so an extra-special gold one was commissioned. We hope that she and the rest of the Royal Family enjoy the game!"

The Queen can now claim to be the second-most popular world figure to house Nintendo's ubiquitous console, right after US President Barack Obama snatched one up for the White House soon after taking power. No word yet on whether the Queen and First Lady Michelle Obama will continue their burgeoning friendship via a few fast-paced games of Mario Kart Online, but we'll certainly keep you posted! Cheers!
