One is not commonly affiliated with social media, but things might be changing in 2019…

At the mature age of 92, Queen Elizabeth II has posted her first picture to Instagram!

Using the Royal Family account (@theroyalfamily, in case you aren’t already following), the Queen shared an image of a letter from from the Royal Archives, which she discovered during a visit to the Science Museum.

The letter, from 1843, was written by the the world’s first computer pioneer, Charles Babbage, to Elizabeth’s great-great-grandfather Prince Albert.

“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,” the Queen wrote.

She signed the post “Elizabeth R”, short for Elizabeth Regina which translates to “Queen Elizabeth” in Latin.
