It’s no secret that Queen Elizabeth II doesn’t run her own social media accounts. As the Queen of England, she obviously has a team for that. However, on a rare occasion, she will take a break from that protocol and write a personal message on her own behalf. This weekend was one of those times.
On Saturday, the 95-year-old monarch showed her support for England’s soccer team ahead of the Euro 2020 final. In a post on IG, she wrote to the team manager Gareth Southgate, who helped lead England to their first tournament final since 1966, wishing him and his team the best of luck.
