Palace Takes Groundbreaking Steps Over Social Media Interaction

Palace Takes Groundbreaking Steps Over Social Media Interaction

The Royal Family said the guidelines were introduced to maintain "a safe environment" on channels run by the three households, and called for users to show "courtesy, kindness and respect".

The Royal Family has published rules for followers of its social media channels, warning that anyone who posts offensive comments will be blocked or reported to the police in the wake of escalating abuse of the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex.

The statement goes on to explain how the royals aim to create an online community that "can engage safely in debate and is free to make comments, questions and suggestions".

By engaging with our social media channels you agree to follow these guidelines.

Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.

"We reserve the right to hide or delete comments made on our channels, as well as block users who do not follow these guidelines".

They stated that comments must not be defamatory, obscene, threatening, or abusive; be discriminatory in any way; be "off-topic, irrelevant or unintelligible" or contain advertising.

Of course, there's no official comment from the palace on rumored trips-they're quite busy at the moment making a rare statement, that Meghan and Harry will not raise their baby gender-neutrally-so take it with a grain of salt. As well as promising to deleting and blocking any abuse that's spotted across the platforms, the royal representatives also add that they will "send any comments we deem appropriate to law enforcement authorities for investigation".

A source told Hello! magazine: "The Palace has always monitored comments but it's a hugely time-consuming thing".

Clearly, the fam isn't playing around... and they're making it a priority to protect family members young and old while also fostering healthy discussion online among fans, followers, and English subjects.

"Over the course of the a year ago, with hundreds of thousands of comments, there were two or three that were violent threats", the insider says.

"It's something you have to manage because there's no other way to control it".
