Since Prince William and Kate Middleton have a huge social media presence, the pair made a major change to their Instagram account on Wednesday, May 5 — the same day they announced they were launching their first YouTube channel.
The couple updated their Instagram handle from @KensingtonRoyal to @DukeandDuchessofCambridge. However, their Twitter page handle is still @KensingtonRoyal.
Kate and William also uploaded a new profile photo to their Instagram and YouTube pages — a photograph of the two of them laughing while in Ireland.
On Kate and William's Instagram account, they promoted the mom-of-three's new book called Hold Still, which shows what life was like in the U.K. amid the pandemic. "Coming this Friday...📚#HoldStill2020," the post read.
Additionally, the duo sent Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son, Archie, well-wishes for his second birthday. "Wishing Archie a very happy 2nd birthday today. 🎈🎂," they captioned a photo of the royal family at Archie's christening in 2019.
The most recent post shows Kate corresponding with a 4-year-old cancer patient named Mila, and fans can watch the six-minute video on their YouTube channel.
"Introducing a series of telephone calls that The Duchess held with participants from the Hold Still photography project, that will be released on our YouTube channel over the coming weeks," the post read. "Listen to the first of the series now via link in bio. The calls, which took place last autumn, saw The Duchess speak to a number of the 100 finalists who shared their experiences of life during the first COVID-19 lockdown in the UK by submitting an image to Hold Still. #HoldStill2020."
Even though William, 38, won't be king for quite some time, he is already thinking about the future of the Monarchy and the changes he’ll make,” an insider revealed. “While he respects protocol, he plans to modernize some aspects and is making it his mission to be more relatable than previous generations.”
