Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain has died. Here’s what she meant for technology

On September 8, 2022, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain died at the age of 96. She survived her husband Prince Philip by a year and a half, who died in April last year. Elizabeth’s funeral will take place in ten days.

It would seem that where is Elizabeth II and where are the technologies, but no, she left a mark in the history of high-tech:

  • The wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Lieutenant Mountbatten – one of the first ceremonies broadcast on TV – 1947
  • The first coronation shown on TV – 1953
  • On December 25, 1957, Elizabeth became the first British monarch to wish her subjects a Merry Christmas on television.
  • On March 26, 1976, Queen Elizabeth II became the first head of state to use email.

Not much, but enough.

The next British monarch will be the son of Elizabeth Charles, who took the name Charles III. He will be proclaimed king on September 9 at 12:00 Moscow time.
