Queen has secret Facebook account and ‘unhackable’ Samsung smartphone

In her 69-year reign, the Queen has been alive to witness some incredible technological changes—and always embraced them.

When she first became Britain's monarch in 1952, television had been on the air for less than twenty years, but Queen Elizabeth's coronation was the first to be fully televised around the world.

Fast forward almost seventy years, and the world of technology is unrecognisable. According to Palace insiders, though, the Queen hasn't been left behind by the younger members of the Royal Family.

Today, she has an 'unhackable' smartphone of her own that she uses to keep in touch with members of the Royal Family, an iPad,—and allegedly, even a 'secret' Facebook account.

The Queen reportedly uses a Samsung smartphone with a built-in camera.

According to Royal expert, the royal smartphone is heavily encrypted and packed to the teeth with MI6-level security features, making it all but unhackable.

Apparently, the two people she speaks to the most are her daughter, Princess Anne, and her racing manager, John Warren, who looks after hundreds of the Queen's horses.

Warren is said to be the only person in the world whose calls can get through to the Queen straight away, anywhere in the world.

She also uses her smartphone to read the day's news, while she has been known to use the iPad for Twitter.

The Queen uses Twitter but keeps her Facebook friends list a secret

The Queen sent her first tweet at the opening of a Science Museum exhibit back in 2014.

From the Royal Family Twitter account, she wrote: "It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the [Science Museum] and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R."

In 2016, she sent her second and third tweets ever.

"I am most grateful for the many digital messages of goodwill I have received and would like to thank you all for your kindness. Elizabeth R."

This was shortly followed by confirmation that the monarch definitely posted the message.

"This tweet was personally sent by Her Majesty The Queen"

Insiders close to the Palace also claim that the Queen has a hidden Facebook account under a pseudonym, but the number of Facebook friends she has remains a closely-guarded secret.

During the Queen's first ever Christmas broadcast in 1957, she talked candidly about “the speed at which things are changing all around us”.

Sixty-four years later, she must be astonished at the pace of change.
