This is news that may rejoice more than one. Kate Middleton and Prince William land on Youtube. The couple announced, this Wednesday, May 5, the launch of their own channel by publishing their very first video on the platform. A clip of less than 30 seconds that looks like a trailer entitled “Welcome to our Youtube channel”. “Be careful what you say because we are filmed” launches Prince William with humor to his wife in the introduction. Several extracts from the archives of the various official Cambridge releases follow.
Enough to imagine that this Youtube channel will allow them to relay their various commitments, but also to speak on subjects that are close to their hearts. It is also a way for the parents of George, Charlotte and Louis to strengthen their proximity to their audience. If Kate and William have not yet specified what content will be offered on this new platform, admirers of the British Crown are already at the rendezvous. Barely 30 minutes after the publication of their announcement, the future King and Queen of England already had more than 16,000 subscribers, a figure that is only expected to increase.
Kate and William going against the Sussexes
By strengthening their online presence, Kate Middleton and Prince William are once again going against the grain of the Sussexes. The latter have in fact chosen to delete all their social networks, including their Twitter and Instagram accounts, because of the online harassment they have been faced with. It is now only through the site of their Archewell foundation that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry communicate publicly.
