The Queen is on Flickr

The British royal family has opened a photo-sharing account

In its latest bid to keep up with the times, the British royal family has announced that it will open a Flickr account ( The free-to-access site will be continuously updated, though it will initially contain more than 600 photographs of Queen Elizabeth II on formal engagements, pictures from palace collections and portraits of the royals as young children, including baby photos of Prince Charles, pictures from King George VI’s coronation in 1937, and photos of the late Princess of Wales with her two sons, Princes William and Harry (although Diana does not have a dedicated ‘channel’ like the other royals).
