The video was taken as the Cambridges recorded their St Patrick’s Day message earlier this year.
William and Kate posted the montage on their official Instagram page with the caption: “Better late than never – we’re now on YouTube.”
They had already picked up over 20,000 subscribers by 4.50pm on Wednesday afternoon.
The Cambridges will post exclusive clips on their YouTube channel in the months ahead.
“You don’t need to roll your Rs”
The move is likely to be interpreted by commentators as the couple further establishing their public voice on a platform that has a huge online audience.
In the first video to posted on the site, the couple are shown sat on a sofa and William jokes with Kate as it begins.
Pointing to the camera and people behind it, he quips: “Be careful what you say now because these guys are filming everything.”
And a laughing Kate replies “I know”.
Replying to the video royal fans expressed their delight about the new channel.
One posted: “Love you guys! Can’t wait to see the content on YouTube.”
Another added: “The Duke and Duchess have upped their social media game. Love it!”
A third posted: “I’m going to subscribe.”
Other Instagram users responded with more general comments praising the couple.
One user commented: “Catherine is adorable! So exciting!”
A second posted: “You two are ADORABLE.”
Another wrote: “The future King and Queen on YouTube – who would have thought it?!”
The Cambridges met Prince Harry last month, at Prince Philip’s funeral, for the first time since the Sussexes’ incendiary Oprah Winfrey interview.
During the show, first broadcast by CBS, Meghan claimed there were “concerns and conversations” within the family about Archie’s skin tone before he was born.
In response William insisted the Royal Family is “very much not racist”.
The Duchess also said she’d experienced mental health problems, and felt unsupported, since marrying into the Royal Family.
A documentary series by Harry and Ms Winfrey on mental health for Apple will air later this month.
