Who says social media is only for the youngsters? Definitely not Queen Elizabeth II.
In what is considered a first in @theroyalfamily, the official Instagram account of the sovereign and other royals, Her Majesty has posted a photo of a discovery while visiting the Science Museum—a letter written in 1843 from the world’s first computer pioneer Charles Babbage to her great-great-grandfather Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.
“Babbage told Queen Victoria and Prince Albert about his invention, the “Analytical Engine,” upon which the first computer programs were created by Ada Lovelace, a daughter of Lord Byron,” the queen writes. “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.”
