It is true--the Queen is now on Facebook! Although she will not "friend" you, you can become one of almost 253,000 people who "like" her page, should you choose to follow along. Her Majesty will not be able to update her status and visitors can not "poke" her to attract her attention, but you will be able to see photos and videos of the royals making their official visits.
We will be also be able to see the listings of official daily engagements of the monarchy and comment as well. You can find the page under The British Monarchy.

And today there is BIG news. The Palace has just announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton are officially engaged. It seems that he proposed on a private holiday to Kenya last month, when he gave Kate his mother's engagement ring. I love that idea! Originally her ring was valued at £28,000 pounds, or roughly $45,000 dollars. They are to be wed next spring or summer, so book your tickets as soon as you receive your "Save the Date" card in your mailbox. The couple will live in Wales after their marriage.
Let me know if you decide to come, but in the meantime, it will be fun to follow along via Facebook.
