In their statement shared on Monday morning, the palace explains that they are working to create a “safe environment” online which requires “courtesy, kindness and respect for all other members of our social media communities” across their platforms.
The move comes after months of constant trolling and scrutiny online towards the royals, largely regarding Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.
Most of the time, there is no one more chill than Queen Elizabeth II, but mess with the royal family and Her Majesty will step up to solve the problem-probably while wearing an excellent colored suit. This morning, Kensington Palace has made the rare move to speak out against the online abuse that the royal family has been facing of late, issuing a set of frank guidelines on how to properly interact with channels run by the royals.
The statement from the palace, issued by the Twitter account of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, comes after what can only be described as an online frenzy spanning the past few months, with brutal speculation, shocking abuse and rumors more ridiculous by the day-let’s be honest, largely aimed towards the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
While the palace usually remains impartial and tight-lipped regarding online coverage of the royals (they sometimes speak out to categorically deny certain inflammatory headlines), the new guidelines shared by both Kensington Palace and Clarence House highlight the importance of creating a “safe environment on all social media channels.”
