has officially logged on to and the is personally leaving comments on photo submissions to her “” project.

The royal family have very active social media accounts. On their social media accounts, they upload photos of their various charitable engagements and mark milestones like birthdays and anniversaries with portraits and celebratory messages.

These Instagram posts are not personal accounts. Instead, they are posted by accounts linked to the location of their household. For example for Prince Charles and Camilla, it is Clarence House and for the Cambridges, it is Kensington Palace. A more general royal family handle would represent the Windsors broadly.

It is assumed that social media accounts are handled by the spokesperson or social media staffers and not the actual members of the royal family. However once in a blue moon, a royal takes control and signs the post with their first initial. In 2018, Prince William sent a number of personal messages to the English World Cup team.

“You wanted to make history @England and you are doing just that. This has been an incredible #WorldCup run and we’ve enjoyed every minute. You deserve this moment – Football’s Coming Home!” he notably wrote, signing the tweet simply, “W.”
