Queen Elizabeth Posts On Instagram For The First Time...

Social media has a new influencer: Britain's Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen published her first post on Instagram on Thursday during a visit to London's Science Museum -- 43 years after she sent her first email.

Rather than opting for the always-popular selfie as her inaugural update, she shared a letter sent by 19th-century mathematician and computer pioneer Charles Babbage to Queen Victoria's husband, 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," she wrote in the post on the official @TheRoyalFamily account, using a touch screen iPad at the museum to send the message.

"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 added to the account's 4.6 million followers.

She signed the post "Elizabeth R."
