Britain’s Queen Elizabeth on Thursday entered the world of social media for the first time when she visited the new Top Secret exhibition at London’s Science Museum.
She marked the opening of the museum’s Smith Centre by sharing an archive image on the royal family’s Instagram account, which has 4.6 million followers at the time of writing this copy.
“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,” the Queen said in the post which she signed off 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 and the original NeXT computer used by Tim Berners-Lee to design the World Wide Web in 1989.
Queen Elizabeth first toured the Science Museum in 1938 and, during her last visit in 2014, opened the Information Age gallery by sending her first tweet.
Other landmark moments include her uploading a video to YouTube while visiting Google in London in 2008.
