Hundreds of photos from the archives of the British Royal Family, the oldest being some of Queen Victoria, were published online, on Flickr, confirming Buckingham Palace’s taste for new technologies.
Over 600 images were posted online, among them are pictures of Queen Elizabeth II, with its eldest son, Prince of Wales, and his children, Princes William and Harry, announced Buckingham Palace, Queen’s official residence in London.
British royal services are using many new technologies adopted also by the queen, although she has the venerable age of 84 years. She uses e-mail, has an iPod and a cell phone.
The Royal website (http://www.royal.gov.uk/) received an update last year, when the queen sent her first message on Twitter. The Queen has also her own channel on YouTube website – the Royal Channel.
A dedicated page on Flickr (www.flickr.com/britishmonarchy) presents original images, and some of Princess Diana, the former wife of Prince Charles, who died in a car crash in Paris, 1997. Here are pictures of the Queen while she was a baby, dressed in military uniform, during World War II.
