Photographs and videos depicting defining moments from the monarch's 60-year reign, donated from people around the world, will be uploaded on to the tablet before it is presented to her.

The data uploaded so far includes clips from the 2011 Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, footage from the London 2012 Olympics and a rap about the 2011 London riots.

"The digital nature of the project required a digital device to present to Her Majesty, and The Queen will be able to press 'play' on the tablet before watching a video of some of the best Jubilee time-capsule entries," said Danny Sriskandarajah, director of the Royal Commonwealth Society charity, which curates the Royal Collection.

The device will be stored at Windsor Castle alongside other tech goods in the Royal Collection, such as DVDs and PCs.
