A Royal expert has hinted that Her Majesty the Queen might have a secret Facebook account, revealing that she has “extraordinary” technology skills.

The question of whether the Monarch is on social media has been a hot topic as of late, with the likes of The Sun and The Express investigating the suggestion numerous times over the years. Now though, royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti has waded in on the matter, speaking to US Weekly about whether it's possible.

“There’ve been reports that the Queen has a secret Facebook account, which I can’t quite believe [because] she is 95-years-old,” he said, before adding “I have trouble sometimes with new technology, but she seems completely able to pick these things up.”

Sacerdoti continued: “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… even at her ripe old age.”

The expert went on to confirm he thinks Her Majesty probably uses social media “just like the rest of us,” although the chances of discovering her secret socials are slim to none.

But, the Queen isn't the only member of the Royal Family supposedly on social media. According to royal journalist Omid Scobie, Prince Harry had a secret Instagram account with the username 'SpikeyMau5,' – although, when news came to light of this, the account was quickly deleted.

Speaking in his book Finding Freedom, which he co-authored with Carolyn Durand, Scobie said: “With no face visible in the profile photo, just a mouse-shaped helmet, it would have meant nothing to most people… But it was in fact Harry's private account.”

On the topic of Harry's own secret social account, Sacerdoti pointed out that even Meghan Markle had been following the profile when she and the Duke of Sussex started dating. “We know that Meghan apparently started following that Instagram account just around the time they started dating,” he explained. “But, of course, even those watching her account then wouldn’t have known that it was Prince Harry.”

As for what the pseudonym 'SpikeyMau5' actually means, Scobie claimed [via Esquire] it was a tribute to the Prince's favourite DJ, DeadMau5, combined with the nickname 'Spike' which Scotland Yard police officers reportedly referred to him as.

So, there you have it.
