Queen’s social media undergoes major change after Prince Philip death

Queen’s social media undergoes major change after Prince Philip death

The social media page for the royal family has undergone a major noticeable change following the death of Prince Philip.

Queen Elizabeth’s official Instagram page, The Royal Family, used to have a photo of her with the Duke of Edinburgh.

However, her team recently changed the profile picture to Her Majesty on her own.

The sad change comes after the royal family’s two-week mourning period following the death of Prince Philip.

During that period, the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge change their pictures on Instagram and Twitter to black and white images.

The Duke of Edinburgh, passed away “peacefully” at Windsor Castle on April 9, aged 99.

Before losing her husband, the monarch had a photo of her smiling at the camera with Philip appeared in the background.

Now, the profile picture is a solo snap which looks to be taken in 2020 during her visit to the MI5 headquarters at Thames House.

The royal family team have also added a new highlights section honouring the late Prince Philip.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry do not have an Instagram page after they gave up their royal titles.

The Queen was seen on Wednesday for her first official public engagement since she lost her husband.

She switched out her black mourning outfit for a blue floral dress.
