What do Selena Gomez and the Queen have in common? They now both post on Instagram!
Queen Elizabeth II posted her first ever Instagram photo of the royal family on the official “Royal Family Instagram Account” for which she used an iPad as she examined “Top Secret exhibits” in the Science Museum.
Members of Newsnuggets along with Barnes Primary, were fortunate enough to experience the arrival of Her Majesty in a black Range Rover at the main entrance of the Science Museum. Some were even able to learn about computer coding tequniqhes while interacting with the Queen. After this, Her Majesty said: “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.”
During this, other members of Newsnuggets were interviewed by Sky News and First News.
The Queen’s post was inspired after reading a letter written in 1843 to Queen Elizabeth’s great – great grandfather, Prince Albert, from computer pioneer: Charles Babbage. Over 170 years later, the invention that Babbage developed enabled Her Majesty to communicate with all her subjects “Instantly.”
