Royals join Twitter and Instagram
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Britain’s Prince Harry have joined Twitter and Instagram.
The three royals have joined the social networks under the shared username @KensingtonPalace, and promise to share news about their day-to-day activities through the accounts.
The description of the Twitter account reads: “Updates, pictures and videos from Kensington Palace, about The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and their Royal Foundation.”
The new accounts on Twitter will post alongside @BritishMonarchy which publishes news from Buckingham Palace and the Royal Family, and the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s account, @ClarenceHouse.
The new account racked up almost 50,000 followers after the first few hours of being live, and posted updates including photographs and quotes from Prince Harry’s day at St James’s Palace in London where he met with young graduates from the Coach Core apprenticeship scheme which aims to inspire young people through sports.
As well as the Twitter account, the Instagram page quickly gained thousands of followers, and will run alongside the Clarence House and British Monarchy accounts which each have more than 60,000 followers.
