The Queen has received the first digital gift to mark her 
Diamond Jubilee, containing memories from thousands of people worldwide.

The Jubilee Time Capsule, which catalogues 8,000 memories from people across 66 countries over the past 60 years, was presented to the Queen on a Samsung Galaxy tablet.

John Samson, 12, from Malawi, presented the gift to the Queen at the Royal Commonwealth 
Society and it will be housed in the Royal Collection at Windsor.

John, who won the RCS’s 
Junior Essay Competition, submitted a moving recollection of being accepted at a school for 
orphans after having survived on the streets by begging.
