Obama Gives Queen of England an iPod

President Barack Obama gifted the Queen of England with an iPod during his visit to Buckingham Palace today.

The Apple music player was loaded with video footage and photographs from her 2007 trip to the U.S., London's Daily Telegraph reports.

(The paper says the queen already has an iPod, though -- a 6 GB Mini she bought in 2005 at Prince Andrew's suggestion.)

The Queen, in turn, gave the president a silver-framed photograph of herself, the standard present for visiting dignitaries.

The Obamas' gift-giving was closely monitored in the UK after the couple came under fire for giving England's prime minister a set of American movie DVDs that weren't formatted for European players during his White House visit earlier this month.
