The Queen makes her first Instagram post


The Queen has posted her first message on Instagram at a new Science Museum exhibition in London.


The monarch made history as she touched an iPad screen and shared photos of a letter sent to her great-great-grandfather.

The Queen posted photos of a letter from 19th century inventor and mathematician Charles Babbage to her great-great-grandfather Prince Albert in 1843.

Babbage, known as a pioneer of the computer, wrote to Prince Albert about his Analytical Engine - a machine that could perform calculations using punched cards. It also had a memory unit to store numbers.
