Infographic: Queen's 90-year tech journey

Since her coronation in 1953, Queen Elizabeth II has used various modes of communication to interact with her subjects, beginning with TV sets in 1957 to Twitter earlier this year.

Here's a timeline on how the Queen has communicated with her subjects in the last 60 years.

Prepared by Three, the timeline begins with her coronation in 1953 which was then viewed by as many as twenty million Britons on black-and-white TV sets, an unprecedented feat. The Queen went on to deliver her first Christmas message to her subjects on live television in 1957, becoming the first monarch to do so. All her previous annual Christmas messages were broadcasted through radio.

In 1976, the Queen sent her first e-mail when she visited the Royal Signals and Radar Establishment, which was the Ministry of Defence's scientific research hub. Yet another transformation took place in 2006 when her annual Christmas message was made available in podcast form.

The Queen then made herself more accessible on social media by opening her Facebook account in 2010 and sending her first tweet in 2014 to announce the opening of the Information Age exhibition at Science Museum in London.

Earlier this year, the Queen went inter-galactic for the first time when she sent a good luck tweet to astronaut Tim Peake after he embarked on a journey to space and joined the Space Station.
