Google UK honours Queen Liz 2.0

Royal visit prompts 'Gawd bless yer Ma'am' logo

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Google UK is today honouring Her Imperial Majestyness Queen Liz 2.0 with a royal "Google doodle" marking the monarch's visit to the search monolith's London offices.

The Queen features in Google's logoAccording to the Beeb, Her Maj and Phil the Greek will shake hands with Google's EMEA prez Nikesh Arora, as well as mixing with lesser mortals representing "key UK staff".

Having endured "a series of demonstrations explaining Google's various operations", the royal couple will rather more agreeably get to meet schoolkids who won a compo to design new doodles.

According to El Reg's royal correspondent, protocol sadly prevents Liz from whizzing round the Blighty Googleplex on a Segway or participating in whiteboard brainstorming power brunches with whalesong-happy Googledroids.

Don't expect any surprises, then, when footage of the visit hits The Royal Channel at around 15:00 GMT this afternoon. ®
