Queen Elizabeth posts on Instagram for the very first time, creates history.

Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth marked the opening of the science museum’s Smith Centre by sharing an archive image on the royal family’s Instagram account.


The British royal family is followed by many people around the globe. And so, their Instagram account has around 4.6 million followers. That’s quite a lot. 

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth on Thursday, entered the world of social media for the first time. It was when she visited the new ‘Top Secret’ exhibition at London’s Science Museum. Her Majesty marked the opening of the museum’s Smith Centre by sharing an archive image on the royal family’s Instagram account.

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.

Queen Elizabeth wrote:-

“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,”today”. The Instagram post was signed as “Elizabeth R”.

Despite the Science Museum being tagged in the post, the Queen did not make use of any hashtags. The 92-year-old monarch saw a World War Two enigma code machine. Not only this, but also the original NeXT computer used by Tim Berners-Lee to design the World Wide Web in 1989.

Queen Elizabeth has seen a lot of things during a reign.

Her Majesty first toured the Science Museum in the year 1938. And, during her last visit in the year 2014, she opened the Information Age gallery by sending her first tweet.

Well, there are many other landmark moments as well. The Queen moved along as the times changed. Some of those great moments include her uploading a video to YouTube while visiting Google in London in the year 2008.
