Queen Elizabeth Finally Makes Her Zoom Debut (& Gives Us a Rare Glimpse Inside Windsor Castle)

It’s official, Queen Elizabeth has stepped up her technology game.

The 94-year-old monarch is the latest member of the royal family to take part in a public video chat. Her Majesty spoke with workers from the Carers Trust in honor of Carer’s Week, which highlights people across the U.K. who help those in need. Joining her daughter, Princess Anne, the queen thanked the unpaid caregivers for all of their work during these uncertain times. 

“Interesting listening to all your tales and stories. I’m very impressed by what you have achieved already,” Elizabeth says in the clip. “I am very glad to have been able to join you today.”

On Thursday, Buckingham Palace released the footage, which features a rare glimpse into Windsor Castle where Her Majesty is currently self-isolating with Prince Philip. 

And while we were distracted by how comfortable the queen looks on camera, we also couldn’t help but notice her surroundings, specifically her floral upholstered couch and matching pillows and carpet. Directly behind Queen Elizabeth is an off-white couch with what looks to be a pattern of green vines. The piece of furniture is accented with three burgundy pillows, which just so happen to match the carpet of the room. Coincidence? We think not. 

The room also features a handful of chairs, both wooden and fabric-covered. In the back left corner, we also see picture frames. Although we can’t make out what the pictures are of, we’d place a small bet they include snaps of her corgis. 

Welcome to the Zoom world, Your Majesty.
