Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla’s major social media change makes their important roles clear as they prepare for their future as King and Queen Consort.
- The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have adjusted the description of their official Instagram account.
- The couple’s new description makes their important position within the Royal Family clear as they look ahead to their future roles.
- This royal news comes as we revealed how Meghan Markle celebrated her 41st birthday.
Just like the Queen and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who also have a strong social media presence in an official capacity, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla regularly delight or inspire fans with thought-provoking and adorable posts. Back in 2019 Prince Charles wrote his first social media post signed personally by him, but since then he and Duchess Camilla have often shared heartfelt messages.
From Prince Charles showing his personal side with a joint message marking the start of Ramadan in April to him remarking upon a colossal “sacrifice” on Anzac Day, the royal couple consistently share deeply personal words and photos.
Now Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have made a major social media change that reflects more than ever how important they are to the future of the monarchy…

Whilst their Instagram handle, Clarence House, remains the same as it always was, the future King and Queen Consort seem to have added a new line into their Instagram description. Above their usual message, “The official Instagram account of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall”, now reads in bold, “The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall”.
This didn’t appear to have been there before and although the secondary line already makes it clear to fans on the page that the account is their official one, the new line makes this truly unmissable.
The new line, complete with the formal capitalized ‘The’ before both titles highlights the official nature of the account and reinforces their significant positions within the extended Royal Family.
The Prince of Wales is first in the royal line of succession, with the Queen expressing her “sincere wish” earlier this year that Duchess Camilla would become known as ‘Queen Consort’ when he takes the throne. Soon after her momentous announcement, Prince Charles paid adorable tribute to Duchess Camilla as he described how they were both “deeply conscious of the honor” that was “represented” by his mother’s wish.
Duchess Camilla addressed the Queen Consort news herself in February, calling it a “great honor” to receive this blessing from Her Majesty. The Queen’s message came in what has been an incredibly busy year for her eldest son and daughter-in-law.
In recent months, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have stepped in to represent the Queen at everything from the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony, to the Maundy Thursday service and the Platinum Jubilee weekend’s Service of Thanksgiving.
Their increased prominence could perhaps be seen to reflect the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s significant roles within the Royal Family and their preparation to take on even greater responsibilities in the future.
In light of this, the decision to add an extra bold line in their Instagram description could again be making their current positions a little clearer with their social media presence ahead of Prince Charles becoming King.
