Aside from joining twitter last year , the Royal Family has decided to embrace content sharing and have posted up rare pictures of the Royals' on social-photography website Flickr.
The images of recent royal events, archive pictures of the Queen, Prince of Wales and other members of the monarchy can be seen from Today.
More than 600 photographs have been added to the British Monarchy's Photostream account.
The images will be updated as new engagements and events take place.
The development follows the launch of the updated royal website, British Monarchy Twitter account last year and the Royal Channel on YouTube in 2007.
The Flickr account is timed to coincide with the summer opening of Buckingham Palace, as it features photographs commissioned for the exhibition, The Queen's Year, which opens next Tuesday at the London palace.
