The Queen Of England Is On Facebook The British monarchy has officially joined Facebook. Fans won't be able to personally "friend request" Queen Elizabeth -- or "poke" her. But you can follow her daily engagements, see pictures of her and maybe her corgis -- the usual stuff people post. Except that, of course, other people's photos don't feature the crown jewels.
