As the official two-week period of mourning ends, the Queen updated her profile picture to remove the photo with Philip and exchange it for a smiling solo picture of herself. 

The previous profile picture included a photo of The Queen and Prince Philip in 2016 at the Epsom Derby.

In addition to this change, the Instagram account shared the first public photo of The Queen since the funeral, showing her smiling on a virtual zoom call with the Ambassador from the Republic of Latvia.

Do you think that these changes were too soon, or a necessary step forward for the Queen?
