The Royal family’s social media account will now not tolerate any rude behavior or trolls from people and they will block trolls who send offensive messages in a crackdown on abusive comments against Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.
The new guidelines from Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace will see ‘obscene, offensive or threatening’ comments removed in order to create a ‘safe environment’ for genuine fans.
Royal aides have given a warning that abusive comments – such as those targeting Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle – could be reported to the police.
Kensington Palace revealed in January that its moderating teams spend ‘hours’ eliminating ‘vile’ comments, which often target the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex, also.
In the message posted on the royal family’s website, the stern guidelines asked followers of the Windsors’ accounts to not ‘promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.’
‘’The aim of our social media channels is to create an environment where our community can engage safely in debate and is free to make comments, questions and suggestions,’’ it said.
‘’We ask that anyone engaging with our social media channels shows courtesy, kindness and respect for all other members of our social media communities.’’
‘’We reserve the right to determine, at our discretion, whether contributions to our social media channels breach our guidelines,’’
‘’We reserve the right to hide or delete comments made on our channels, as well as block users who do not follow these guidelines.’’
‘’We also reserve the right to send any comments we deem appropriate to law enforcement authorities for investigation as we feel necessary or is required by law.’’
It was revealed last month that tennis player Serena Williams, a close friend of Meghan Markle had been helping her deal with online abuse.
According to reports Serena, also 37, offered Kensington Palace the help of her team after seeing a growing number of cruel jibes aimed at the mother-to-be on social media.
The insider said: ‘’Meghan is still acclimatizing to the royal way of dealing with things – she is very much used to the ruthless Hollywood PR machine.’’
‘’Her publicist Kelly put a small team together to create a pitch, and have been in touch with the Palace under an official capacity with a few ideas.’’
‘’Meghan’s obviously had some horrible trolling, plus people keep speculating about her relationship with Kate so Serena feels she needs the ‘big guns’ behind her to set the record straight, and shut everything down.’’
