The official Royal Family Twitter account has more than 3 million followers, who are usually treated to tweets about the Royal Family's activities and visitors to Buckingham Palace.

However, a series of tweets posted on Wednesday evening posing a series of cryptic questions have left a lot of people scratching their heads.

The first was posted at 6:49 and asked a question about fungi.

The next was about pipes being fitted to a cistern.

Then came a question about redundant letters in the English alphabet.

Lastly, the account asked if you had passed 'the special examination?'

While there is a simple explanation for these questions, people were initially very, very confused.

Some even thought the account had been hacked.

However, a little bit of investigation would have revealed that the questions were in relation to a series of tweets posted just moments before.

They made reference to 150 anniversary of women in higher education, with the aforementioned questions being featured in a 'special examination' that women first took at the University of London 1869.

While some have figured out what the tweets were about, others remain completely perplexed.
