Queen Elizabeth Flickr Photos!

Followers of the Royal Family just got a rare new opportunity to connect with the Queen herself, as Queen Elizabeth has now started a new personal Flickr account.

The Queen will share photos of the family and their various appearances representing the United Kingdom. The photos go back to the 19th century, showing the Monarchy in various stages of its history. Most of the photos show Prince Charles, Elizabeth and other Royals on their various trips around the globe including a recent trip to Canada.

The queen has been relatively quick to adopt new social media technology, already getting on twitter and youtube to show off the royal jewels and the royal family's various delights.

The British Monarchy stream includes photos going back to Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert, dating from about 1861. It also has photos of eminent Victorians such as the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, as well as baby pictures of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, the heir to the throne.
