Countless milestones have already been achieved by the longest reigning monarch in the world, Queen Elizabeth II. And on March 7, 2019, her majesty accomplished yet another milestone as she posted for the first time on the official Instagram account of the British Royal Family.
Queen Elizabeth II’s very first post on Instagram showed a video of her during her visit to London’s Science Museum, which featured a letter sent by 19th-century mathematician and computer pioneer Charles Babbage to Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert.
Queen Elizabeth II 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, at the Science Museum which has long championed technology, innovation and inspired the next generation of inventors.”
She then signed the post with “Elizabeth R.”, marking her first official upload on the social media platform.

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. 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. 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.

Many spectators were quite baffled upon seeing her royal highness’s post – thereby, prompting some more excitement about the other posts the Queen might personally share in the future.
Given this, we’ve listed down 5 things we can’t wait for the Queen to post on Instagram.
Queen Elizabeth’s fabulous everyday dress ensembles
Queen Elizabeth II is the one who revolutionized the use of neon-colors in dress ensembles. So, now who can say color coordination in your outfit isn’t cool?
Videos or pictures of her irresistible corgis
The Queen’s corgis are so adorable that a movie was produced based on them. But honestly, we’re still waiting for her majesty to post something about her cute doggos on Instagram. We’re definitely waiting on your next move, Queen Elizabeth.
The very British hats that are her majesty’s favorite accessory
Teas aren’t the only thing the British are popular for. Female ‘Brits,’ for instance, are recognized for wearing hats during a plethora for formal and traditional occasions. And the Queen herself is no exception to this, as we’ve seen her wearing these festive headpieces since she assumed the throne from her father.
So, we’re excited to see whether the Queen will post something ‘hat-related’ that would make us go to the nearest store and buy one for ourselves!
Videos or pictures of her majesty’s adorable grandchildren
Who wouldn’t want to see the raw moments of Queen Elizabeth as she spends her time with her lovable grandchildren? Like we would freak out if the Queen would finally post pictures of her grandchildren on the account.
Her majesty’s caption to every post is also something we could look forward to. Seriously, who here isn’t excited to hear her “Queenly” voice on her IG photos and videos?
It definitely looks like this reigning monarch is set to be our newest and most favorite influencer. Instagram influencers should literally be shaken by her awesomeness! /FM
