If you're like us and are wondering how you'll keep up with Prince Philip's life now that he's officially retired from his royal duties, we've got the perfect solution. Apparently, his darling "Cabbage" Queen Elizabeth has a secret personal Facebook account.
Royal author Brian Hoey told the Mail Online that the 91-year-old monarch is very in touch with the latest in technology, having a Facebook account with the highest privacy settings and a clandestine friends list. Apparently, she uses Facebook to chat to her daughter, Princess Anne, and racing manager, John Warren.
Rumor has it that John is the only person in the world that can get through to the royal at any time. And we think there's a grain of truth in that. After all, we know how much she adores horseback riding.
Brian also spilled that Her Majesty has a personal laptop, iPad, and an un-hackable mobile phone.
“The royal mobile is kept fully charged at all times by Angela Kelly, the Queen’s personal assistant and senior dresser. It’s an ultra-slim model with a camera, small and light enough to fit in a pocket or handbag," he revealed.
Admittedly, we tried our very best to find Lilibet. We Facebook searched Elizabeth Windsor, but the results gave us little hope. However, Lilibet Windsor came up with one very mysterious result: Let's just say there is a friendship request floating around.
The longest-reigning British queen has always been ahead of the times. These days, she's all about running a modern monarchy, with her own public YouTube channel, Instagram account, Facebook page, and Twitter handle followed by millions.
But it all began in 1976, when Queen Elizabeth sent her first email from a British army base.
So, what would the Queen be like on social media? We imagine she'd share a corgi video or two...
The beloved Monarch isn't the only royal who is active on social media. Prince Harry is said to have a private and untraceable Instagram account. We're guessing girlfriend Meghan Markle has made the cut of followers. Meanwhile, Duchess Catherine has reportedly turned to online mothers' groups for tips.
“Kate has turned to websites like Mumsnet and BabyCentre for guidance,” a source told Reveal magazine. “She has adopted an anonymous name and mainly posts questions about issues she and Prince William disagree on, like watching cartoons before bed.”
You might think "IheartWills1986" is just your average girl next door, but you're really chatting to the future Queen.
