Meet Instagram's newest influencer.

The Queen may be about to turn 93 next month, but that won't keep her off her social media game. She proved that on Thursday during a visit to London's Science Museum.

Look, here she is looking intently at the computer Sir Tim Berners-Lee used to create the World Wide Web.

And perusing items in the museum's new intelligence and security exhibition.

During the visit she used an iPad to write her ~ first ever ~ Instagram post.

She chose a picture of a letter written to her great great grandfather, and Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert.

It was written by Charles Babbage, an engineer credited with creating the first mechanical computer.

(This is Babbage, in case you're interested.)

"Today, I had the pleasure of learning about children’s computer coding initiatives and it seems fitting to me that I publish this Instagram post," the Queen wrote.

People loved it and welcomed her to the platform.

Nailed it.
