Is this the first time a Zoom-type video conversation involving HM has been shared?

I think so, as the message The Queen did for nurses week was spoken not videoed.

Indeed. Good to see her embrace this technology as well.

Yes, this is apparently HM's first public zoom. It actually took place last week but parts of it have been released to mark Carers' Week.

Personally I think it speaks a lot to HM's relationship with Anne that this is her first zoom video and it was for the Carers Trust which is Anne's patronage which was formed by merging "The Princess Royal Trust for Carers" (set up by Anne in 1991) and "Crossroads Care" so is obviously a cause close to Anne.

Its great to see the queen and Anne together supporting this.

The queen has shown she isn't shy of embracing modern touches, think her and Prince Harry Invictus video comes to mind. Happy to see the zoom.

I don’t know where this would go, so MODs please move if not appropriate.

Prince William and Henry have split Diana memorial fund between them. This was finalised in December 2019, and according to the article a spokesperson for The Duke of Sussex said Henry’s half will now go to Sentebale since the disbandment of Sussex Royal.

I wonder if there are any images of Camilla's side of the ceremony.

Hopefully, if there are any, they will be posted later on.

Hard to imagine that the Duke is 99 years old!

Looking very good indeed!

If anyone's curious as to why the solders were marching so quickly it's a light infantry tradition.

And there we have it. The proof is in the pudding. At 99 years young, Philip is in extraordinary health for a man his age. At one point in the video it looked like he was expected to go back indoors but instead, took the time to walk down the stairs and talk with a few of the men before heading indoors.

If that is what 99 looks like, I'm all for it!

Lovely to see Philip still, as ever, honouring his military roles, even while handing over his role to his daughter in law.

If anything was going to get him in public again it would be a military role.

Here is a video of Camilla's side
