The Royals have turned to a ‘powerful’ tool to protect members’ voices. ‘We didn’t have it before!’

A royal commentator predicted that the Royal Family would increasingly use social media to share “behind the scenes” information.

With the Royal Family’s ongoing documentary dispute with the BBC, expert Angela Mollard suggested royals use social media accounts instead of sharing information with the press.

By personally managing their social presence, members of the family can ensure that their voices are heard and protected.

YouTube and Twitter, according to Ms Mollard, are “powerful” tools in the Royal Family’s arsenal.

“The public didn’t know how the press worked and their relationship,” Ms Mollard told Austalia’s The Morning Show. “But the real power for the royals is in social media.”

“They now have a voice, which they didn’t have in the 1990s, and if I were them, I’d be running social media.”

“The Royals never told us that Prince Harry was seeing Meghan Markle; the journalist discovered it, and we want to know about it,” she said. “But it’s a very tense relationship, and I think how that’s managed going forward, particularly when the Queen passes, will be really interesting.”

On May 5, Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, launched their own YouTube channel, expanding their social media presence.

They teased a video of themselves performing royal duties, including a behind-the-scenes look at the palace gates.

The teaser also shows Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, the couple’s three children, clapping on their doorstep during the Clap for Carers event.

The Duchess of Cambridge also chose to take control of her children’s photographs from the press.

She has been using her photographic skills to avoid invading her privacy by sharing a glimpse into her life with the world by snapping a cute photo of Prince George on his eighth birthday.

“There’s no market anymore because the Duchess comes out with her family photos and they’re far more valuable to the press than images taken with a long lens,” royal commentator Camilla Tominey told The Telegraph.

“That’s how The Cambridges are going to strike the balance; they’re going to give in exchange for some privacy.”

“George’s childhood is going to be,” she added.
