Queen Elizabeth II shares her first Instagram post on The Royal Family account

Queen Elizabeth II is getting in on the Instagram fun.

The queen published her first post on the Royal Family’s Instagram page on Thursday to celebrate her visit to the Science Museum in London. The post was a picture of an old letter sent to Prince Albert from 19th-century mathematician Charles Babbage.

“Today, as I visit the Science Museum I was interested to discover a letter from the Royal Archives, written in 1843 to my great-great-grandfather Prince Albert,” the queen wrote in the Thursday post. “Charles Babbage, credited as the world’s first computer pioneer, designed the ‘Difference Engine’, of which Prince Albert had the opportunity to see a prototype in July 1843.”

“In the letter, Babbage told Queen Victoria and Prince Albert about his invention the ‘Analytical Engine’ upon which the first computer programmes were created by Ada Lovelace, a daughter of Lord Byron,” she continued. “Today, I had the pleasure of learning about children’s computer coding initiatives and it seems fitting to me that I publish this Instagram post, at the Science Museum which has long championed technology, innovation and inspired the next generation of inventors.”

The queen ended the post by signing it, “Elizabeth R.” The letter R stands for Regina, which means “queen.”

“We were honoured to welcome Her Majesty The Queen to the Science Museum today, where The Queen shared a post on Instagram for the first time and announced a new major exhibition, Top Secret: From Ciphers to Cyber Security,” the museum wrote in its own post.

The Royal Family account was set up in 2013 to share photos and information from the British royals. It currently has 4.6 million followers.

The queen also posted her first tweet on The Royal Family’s Twitter account in 2014 at the Science Museum.

Kensington Palace announced earlier this week it was implementing guidelines for its social media channels in the wake of the online abuse against the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex in recent months.

“She was wonderful and she’s just an incredible human being,” he added of the actress.

Booker is also aware that balancing in a relationship while campaigning will be a challenging task. “As our relationship grows it’s difficult, but she is such a deeply soulful person,” he revealed. “[She] has taught me a lot of lessons about love already. That sometimes, you show the greatest strength when you make yourself vulnerable.”

“She really has this nurturing spirit that’s made me more courageous, not just in the love that I project and want to see in our country, but I think even in our own personal relationships to love more fearlessly,” he continued. “So, I’m very, very blessed to be with somebody that makes me a better person.”

DeGeneres even joked about officiating their potential White House wedding and said it would be like America’s version of a royal wedding.

Dawson said of Booker last week, “I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much” and she’s really enjoying the time they get to spend with each other.

The couple first made headlines in January when they were reportedly spotted seeing a Broadway show together.
