The Queen Joins Flickr

Read in the paper today that Her Majesty the Queen now has a flickr page, some great shots on there including some real oldies from the early days of photography.

Abers you're a naughty man  ;) You'll be whisked off to the Tower if you're not careful.

Whether you're a royalist or a republican matters not for this, this is part of our history and heritage and I think there are some great shots on there that show our monarchy in all their glory...(and yes I am a royalist but that is a separate argument) Especially as there are some shots that have never been seen publicly before.

Out of interest I looked at the tags section and was intrigued to find 'royal kitchen'. I clicked on it  hoping to see Phillip doing the washing up, but like most hubbies he seems to have got out of it. :o

Haven't checked yet, but are the photograph authors being credited?
I wonder if Getty have asked for them to be added to the Getty/ Flickr partneship...

Quite sure the revenue from such pictures would pay for a roof or two to be replaced or maintained  ::)
