Kensington Palace announced today that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have officially joined Twitter!
Following in the footsteps of The Queen who sent out her first Tweet last year when she tweeted “It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R.” it only seemed a matter of time before the young royals would follow suit. After all…if it’s good enough for granny…
The palace Tweeted that @KensingtonRoyal will be the official Twitter account for royal trio and will feature updates on all their work and royal foundation.
No matter what you feel about social media the message is clear, in today’s world it is a necessary tool for staying in touch with your public. Business corporations, charities, movie studios and celebrities alike all take to Twitter to send out their 140 character messages to the world. Just hours after introducing the new royal Twitter account nearly 50K royal watchers had already followed. Whether or not we’ll be receiving selfie posts from Prince William and Catherine remains to be seen. Doubtful. Still, we sent out our first Tweet welcoming William, Catherine and Harry to TwitterLand!
