  • In their statement shared on Monday morning, the palace explains that they are working to create a “safe environment” online which requires "courtesy, kindness and respect for all other members of our social media communities” across their platforms.
  • The move comes after months of constant trolling and scrutiny online towards the royals, largely regarding Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.

Most of the time, there is no one more chill than Queen Elizabeth II, but mess with the royal family and Her Majesty will step up to solve the problem-probably while wearing an excellent colored suit. This morning, Kensington Palace has made the rare move to speak out against the online abuse that the royal family has been facing of late, issuing a set of frank guidelines on how to properly interact with channels run by the royals.

UK police speak to Prince Philip about not wearing seatbelt British police have spoken with Prince Philip after the husband of Queen Elizabeth II was photographed apparently driving without wearing a seatbelt _ just two days after he was involved in a car crash. Norfolk Police said late Saturday "suitable words of advice have been given to the driver". The photograph published by British media Saturday showed Philip, 97, driving a new Land Rover near the royal residence at Sandringham.

He has rarely taken formal action on the very regular publication of fictional stories that are written about him and he has worked hard to develop a professional relationship with the Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her.

Kensington Palace is a royal residence set in Kensington Gardens, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London, England.

The statement from the palace, issued by the Twitter account of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, comes after what can only be described as an online frenzy spanning the past few months, with brutal speculation, shocking abuse and rumors more ridiculous by the day-let's be honest, largely aimed towards the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

While the palace usually remains impartial and tight-lipped regarding online coverage of the royals (they sometimes speak out to categorically deny certain inflammatory headlines), the new guidelines shared by both Kensington Palace and Clarence House highlight the importance of creating a “safe environment on all social media channels.”

Thai royal palace authorizes 1st election since 2014 coup Thailand's royal palace issued a decree Wednesday authorizing the first general election since the military took power in 2014.The decree published in the Royal Gazette puts into effect election laws that were drafted by the military government, which has kept tight control over political activities and made efforts to quash dissent. The ruling junta had pushed back several promised election deadlines — at least once every year since a coup in May 2014 overthrew a democratically elected government. The most recent promised election date of Feb.

Historically, the royal family have rarely reacted in times of intense media reporting about them. But a source working for the royals told BuzzFeed News but the international media does.

The statement goes on to explain how the royals aim to create an online community that “can engage safely in debate and is free to make comments, questions and suggestions”. In keeping with such an outlook, the palace goes on to ask for “courtesy, kindness and respect for all other members of our social media communities.”

More specifically, the new official guidelines state that comments regarding the royal family must not “be defamatory of any person, deceive others, be obscene, offensive, threatening, abusive, hateful, inflammatory or promote sexually explicit material or violence.” Similarly, they must not “promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.”

Perhaps most kick-ass of all, Kensington Palace goes on to make no mistake that any online trolls who go against these guidelines will feel the repercussions. As well as promising to deleting and blocking any abuse that’s spotted across the platforms, the royal representatives also add that they will “send any comments we deem appropriate to law enforcement authorities for investigation.”

While it's sad that this is a necessary move from the palace, it's about time that the barrage of online abuse is taken a little more seriously. Insert clapping hands emojis right here.
