Relax, take a deep breath… Today the 7th of March in the year of our Lord 2019 is a historic day!

Yesterday we marked 62 years since we gained independence from Britain, even though we kept Queen Elizabeth II on as our Head of State for three more years until July 1, 1960, when Ghana was declared a republic.

Enough of the independence day history class, we have another historic event happening today.

Today, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II truly became a Queen of our times.

She achieved this by doing something billions of people in the world have been doing for years now…

The Queen sent her very first Instagram post by herself.

She sent the Instagram post at the Science Museum in London which has long championed technology, innovation and inspired the next generation of inventors.

Her Majesty’s first post was about computers and coding.

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,” she captioned her Instagram post by signing out with “Elizabeth R”.
