    Bill Gates and the Queen chatted about computers
    The king of computer software Bill Gates has received an honorary knighthood from the Queen.
    Mr Gates, 48, the world's wealthiest man, said it was "a great honour" to be recognised for his business skills and for his work on poverty reduction.

    The Queen had spoken to him about using computers, he said after a private audience with her.

    As an American citizen he cannot use the title "Sir" but will be entitled to put the letters KBE after his name.
