Prince Charles recently opened up about the impact of social media use on young people at the Prince’s Trust Invest in Futures event this week.
During his speech at the Prince’s Trust Invest in Futures event, the future king said that social media can make the younger generation feel inadequate. He also raised concerns about the way social media apps like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook can affect children’s mental health because those users that use the platforms tend to compare themselves to the people that they see on social media.
Chloe Best, a journalist for Hello! magazine said that it may be unlikely for Prince Charles to allow his grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis to use social media because of all of its negative effects. When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby is born, Prince Charles may also encourage them not to allow their child to use social media.
Prince Charles and the other members of the royal family, who are dubbed as working royals, do not have their private social media accounts. The Duchess of Sussex used to have a lifestyle blog called The Tig, as well as Instagram, but she deleted it just before her wedding to Prince Harry.
Months later, Markle went on her first overseas tour in Australia with Prince Harry. While there, she told the members of the surfing community group how freeing it has been since she stopped using the sites.
Meanwhile, Sarah Ferguson and Princess Eugenie have their own personal social media accounts that they use to update royal fans on their charity work. They also use Instagram and Twitter to share throwback photos and other updates to their followers.
Ferguson is technically no longer an official member of the royal family since she and Prince Andrew got divorced in 1996. Princess Eugenie, on the other hand, is not considered a working royal.
Royal fans that wish to know the Royals’ schedules and other updates may check out the official accounts of the Clarence House, the Buckingham Palace, and the Kensington Palace on Twitter and Instagram.
