It’s been a week of remembering the past and looking to the future for the Queen. As well as the usual audiences, including her weekly meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May, the Queen has celebrated a special anniversary and shown everyone just how social media should really be done. Here’s the Queen’s week, in pictures.
The Queen marked a special moment for her and her first born son as she led celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales at a reception at Buckingham Palace on March 5th.
Elizabeth II and the Prince of Wales were joined by the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Princess Royal as they looked back on events on July 1st 1969 and celebrated Charles’ achievements in the role. People from across Wales as well as politicians including Prime Minister, Theresa May, were also present for the celebrations.
The Queen held a series of audiences on March 6th 2019 at Buckingham Palace. She received the President of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades, and his wife, Andri, at Buckingham Palace.

The royal highlight of the week has to be the Queen doing Instagram for the first time. Her Majesty posted her first contribution to the Royal Family’s official account during a visit to the Science Museum in London on March 7th 2019.
