Wii are amused.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has found herself a new hobby--playing with Prince William's Wii. British red top The People reports that the Queen has become hooked on the console after William brought it round to the royal residence, Sandringham House in Norfolk.

The console was a Christmas gift from his girlfriend Kate Middleton, but when the Queen saw him playing, she apparently had to have a go.

According to a "Palace source," "She played a simple 10-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."

However, now the 25-year old Prince may not be able to get his hands on his own Christmas present, as Her Majesty is monopolising the console. The source continues, "His only difficulty now is prising it away from the Queen's clutches. She showed all the signs of becoming a Nintendo addict."
