British Monarchy Facebook

The British Monarchy Facebook page is the official profile of the Royal Family. It is here that exclusive photos are posted, such as family portraits of William, Kate, George and Charlotte on holiday. The photos are always posted on the Facebook profile first, and usually appear on other online media very soon after.

William, Kate, George & Charlotte

The British Monarchy page posts regular updates, photos and videos of what the Royal Family have been doing (i.e. public engagements, Royal tours etc) wherever in the world they may have been.

Royal Twitter

The oldest social media profile of the Royal Family, much like its Facebook and Instagram counterparts posts regularly all about the Queen’s endeavours. The first Royal tweet was posted in 2009, but the first tweet posted by the Queen wasn’t until 24th October 2014, and read: It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting.

Clarence House Twitter

Clarence House is the official residence of Prince Charles and Camilla, and this is the official Twitter account for the couple. In contrast to the @RoyalFamily twitter, @ClarenceHouse is a little more informal, retweeting followers and posting photos with popular celebrities.
