The British monarchy's Facebook Page won't let you friend the Queen or poke her, but you can use it to get updates on royal news and diary events. It went live earlier today and has already been liked by some 100,000 users, meaning they will receive updates on the royal family's activities in their Facebook News Feed. Users will also be able to follow the Family's official engagements via the wall of an affiliated Page, dubbed the Court Circular.
The Page, a collaborative effort between Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and the Royal Collection, features news, links, videos, and photographs of various members (primarily Queen Elizabeth, as well as princes Charles, William, and Harry). Personal details such as relationship status, interests, or political views are not included.
So, will you like the British Monarchy on Facebook?
