Queen Elizabeth II has been the head of the British monarchy for almost seven decades already. Many are wondering if the 95-year-old royal has a secret Facebook account. Royal commentator Jonathan Sacerdoti weighed in on the matter and here's what he said.

Queen Elizabeth II Might Have A Secret Facebook

There are speculations that the Queen has a Facebook account. Sacerdoti could not confirm it but said he would not be surprised if the rumors are true because Her Majesty is tech-savvy.

Sacerdoti said, he, himself, had trouble with new technology. However, unlike him, the Queen "seems completely able to pick these things up," according to him. In fact, she did several calls over Zoom when the COVID-19 lockdown made it impossible for people to meet face to face.

"We saw her during lockdown with all the Zoom calls and the video calls. And now, since her health’s been not quite as good as it was in the past, she’s been doing more [appearances] that way. And now we find out about the Facebook account. It’s extraordinary to think how readily and easily she picks up these new technologies," Sacerdoti told Us Weekly. "It’s extraordinary to think how readily and easily she picks up these new technologies."

The royal family has not confirmed the Queen's alleged social media account, so Sacerdoti can only speculate about it. He stressed that the Queen's pseudonym and the number of friends she has have remained unclear. He also joked that the Queen hadn't accepted his friend request.

Queen Elizabeth II's Grandson Prince Harry Has Instagram

The members of the royal family have a social media presence. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Prince of Wales and the Queen are present on Instagram and Twitter. However, they usually do not have personal accounts.

But Prince Harry made a bold move, he had a personal Instagram account before he married Meghan Markle. According to Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand in their book Finding Freedom, Prince Harry maintained an Instagram account with the username "SpikeyMau5."

His Instagram handle was a combination of his Facebook alias "Spike Wells," a nickname that the Scotland Yard officers bestowed upon him. Meanwhile, "Mau5" was a tribute to his favorite DJ Deadmau5, according to Scobie and Durand.

Markle began following Prince Harry's Instagram account when they started dating. Her followers were not aware that the account she followed was the prince. But when their royal romance made headlines, he deleted the account.


Prince Harry is currently promoting against the spread of fake news or misinformation on social media. Also, part of the reasons they decided to quit social media is the intense hate subjected to them, especially to the duchess.

Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have no plans to return to social media unless there are changes.
