Queen Elizabeth II

What a digitally savvy sovereign!

After virtually months of celebrating her 90th April birthday, Queen Elizabeth II took to the Royal Family's Twitter account to personally scribe an appreciative response to her adoring fans. 

"I am most grateful for the many digital messages of goodwill I have received and would like to thank you all for your kindness," she wrote most politely. The cherry on the royal message was the monarch's signature—she finished the tweet with "Elizabeth R." The "R" stands for regina, meaning queen in Latin, a typical sign-off for the ruler on official documents. 

The account followed up with an explanatory tweet, indicating that the queen had indeed penned the message herself. 

"This tweet was personally sent by Her Majesty The Queen," the account read. "The Queen has tweeted to thank all who have sent messages of goodwill on social media for her Birthday #Queenat90"

Attached was a lovely photo of the birthday lady dressed in a bright floral printed sheath while sitting at a desk with a tablet set up in front of her. For someone who doesn't tweet often, Queen Elizabeth certainly seems like she knows her way around social media. 

This isn't her first foray into the world of Twitter. In 2014, the queen sent out her first tweet regarding a new exhibit about the information age at London's Science Museum. "I hope people will enjoy visiting," the message read. 

Short and sweet—the perfect style for social media.
