The Montreal Gazette has just reported that on July 25, Britain's royal family set up a Flickr photo account here. There are photos going back to the nineteenth century, including pics of Diana and previously unseen shots inside Buckingham Palace. This one popped out at me, as did one of the Queen receiving a hockey sweater with ER on it.
In between the photos of women big hats, the site is full of curious captured traditions. This is the Christmas offering in the Chapel Royal.

Offerings of gold, frankincense and myrrh are made on behalf of The Queen on the feast of Epiphany (6 January) each year. These are the gifts offered, according to tradition, by the Magi to the infant Jesus."
