The moment Her Majesty The Queen made her first ever Instagram post (video)

Queen Elizabeth II, 92, shared her first ever Instagram post today while visiting London's Science Museum to help promote the museum's summer exhibition.

The monarch doesn't have an Instagram account and has never made an Instagram post. But all that changed today, on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

For her introductory post, using an iPad, she shared a letter from the Royal Archives that was sent by mathematician and computer pioneer Charles Babbage to Queen Victoria's husband and Queen Elizabeth's great-great-grandfather, Prince Albert.

The Queen wrote in her post on the official @TheRoyalFamily 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.

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.

In the letter, Babbage told Queen Victoria and Prince Albert about his invention, the "Analytical Engine".

Queen Elizabeth added:

She signed the post "Elizabeth R."

The Queen's very first tweet ever was also sent during a visit to the Science Museum, back in 2014. She included the signature "Elizabeth R." in the tweet as well.
