Prince William and Kate Middleton Just Made an Unexpected Change to Their Instagram Account
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge added a personal touch to their profile.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have always used social media to connect with their fans—and, in the spirit of this transparency, the two just made a personal update to their Instagram account. According to The Daily Mail, the couple has altered their account display name to read "Duke and Duchess of Cambridge," a change from the previous titles of "Kensington Palace" and "Kensington Royal" that were in place for the last five years. The pair updated their Twitter account with the new information, as well.
This news follows another significant social media change: In recent weeks, the pair refreshed their Instagram and Twitter profile photos to an image of them with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis; the snapshot shows the family clapping for the National Health Service during the BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief "Big Night In" on April 23.
Prince William and Kate have kept busy on the social media front, and have remained connected with fans via virtual speaking engagements amid the coronavirus pandemic. The pair recently video chatted with teachers at a school in northern England to thank them for caring for the children of essential workers, People reported. "Well done, honestly, to you and everyone who's in during this time. It must be such a relief for all the parents who are key workers to know that the normality is there for their children—they've got the structure and they've got a safe place for them to be, so really really well done to all of you," Kate said during the meeting.
The Duke of Cambridge also shared his appreciation and support for the employees: "We just want to say a huge thank you to you guys and well done in keeping it all going. Please pass on many messages of support for all the staff and all the volunteers—they're doing a great job."
