The United Kingdom’s head of state shared the post to the official Royal Family account today, during a visit to the Science Museum in London.

The queen made the post from an iPad to the official Royal Family Instagram account, which has 4.6 million followers.

Queen Elizabeth, 92, visited the Kensington museum to announce a new exhibition, called Top Secret: From Ciphers to Cyber Security, which explores Britain’s use of technology in national security “with world-changing consequences over the last 100 years,” according to the museum.

The caption of the post read;

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.
