The Queen has ordered one hundred Samsung flat-panel TVs to be installed in Buckingham Palace, the South Korean giant announced yesterday.

According to a report by South Korean paper The Chosun Ilbo, Samsung yesterday revealed it received the royal command in October, having sent over some brochures in June.

The Queen has apparently selected both LCD and plasma panels for the royal residence, which has 775 rooms in total.
