The Queen Wears Orange, Posts On Instagram

[ Edited ]

The Queen visited the Science Museum today and used an iPad to make her first Instagram post.

 

She posted a letter from the archives that was written to her great great grandfather Prince Albert. You can see a video clip and read more about it on Instagram @theroyalfamily. The letter is posted there, the Queen signed the post Elizabeth R (Regina).

She is dressing much more stylish than 40 years ago.  And I love her hats!  This one is wonderful.  Don't fire your hat designer,  Liz!

I don't love the color on her, but I appreciate that she tries to dress so people can see her.

 

She always looks lovely.

@greeneyedlady  I like that she enjoys wearing color.  So many older people stick to black, but she always looks good.  Love the hats!

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

@faeriemoon   My understanding from my British friends is that she dresses in bold colors as a matter of security.  Because she is tiny, she can get lost in a crowd without the bold colors, makes Security hard to find her.

@NameAlreadyTaken   That makes good sense.

Looks like the same coat and hat (with a different brooch) that she wore on Christmas in 2017.

Here's an article that shows how her fashion choices have changed with the times and with her age.
