Kate, Wills, and Harry Have to Share a Royal Twitter Account

Princess Kate, Prince William, and Prince Harry all joined Twitter today, jointly. The three royals are sharing one account called @KensingtonRoyal, which now has over 20,000 followers just four hours after it was created. The trio's Twitter bio states that posts will include "updates, pictures and videos from Kensington Palace, about The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and their Royal Foundation."

So far, @KensingtonRoyal's Tweets seem devoted to the royals' charitable endeavors. Time writes: "the account won't likely be run by either of the princes or Kate so don't expect anything too revealing." Still, here's hoping that Kate and Wills Tweet out the occasional cute baby photo. Update: The royals just joined Instagram too. Follow them @kensingtonroyal.
