The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Instagram account is a must-follow for royal fans.

Prince William and Duchess Catherine regularly share lovely updates from their life as a royal pair as well as insights into their roles as parents to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Now, the Cambridges have added an even more personal touch to their online platforms, changing the display name on both their Instagram and Twitter account.

Before, Prince William and his wife Kate had kept things official with their social media presence, naming their accounts Kensington Palace.

But it seems they’ve decided to make it more clear to their followers that they’re the brains behind the digital photo album.

The display name on the account now reads The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Below, the biography section says, ‘The official Instagram of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, based at Kensington Palace.

Makes sense!

Supporters of the British monarchy can also keep up to date with what they’re up to via the Clarence House account, where the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall share their latest achievements and announcements.

There’s also The Royal Family account, where general news on the Windsors is posted as well as statements from Her Majesty the Queen.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were in on it too, with their Sussex Royal account.

However, the pair decided to shut down the platform when they stepped back from their roles as senior members of the royal family earlier this year.

The rebellious pair haven’t gone off the radar, though. They recently shared an utterly adorable video of their son Archie celebrating his first birthday over on the Save The Children UK Instagram account.
