There are also photos of the queen as a toddler, announcing her engagement and with an infant Prince Charles.

This isn't the royals' first foray into cyberspace. In addition to its official website, the Monarchy also opened a Twitter account about one year ago, and has a YouTube channel that was launched in late 2007.
