Her Maj sent first email in 1976

Gawd bless yer, e-ma'am

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

The Queen sent her first email in 1976, Her Maj's official website has revealed.

Details on the historic moment - forming one of "80 facts about the Queen", celebrating Liz II's forthcoming achievement of octogenarianism - are not highly illuminating. Suffice it to say, one's first royal email was issued from "an army base".

Other insights include the fact that the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have sent about 37,500 Christmas cards during The Queen's reign.

Furthermore, Her Maj has worked her way through around 30 corgis since 1944 and she still officially "owns the sturgeons, whales and dolphins in the waters around the UK". ®
