Kate and Meghan obscene, offensive, threatening, abusive, hateful
Britain’s royal family about Monday warned trolls about its social press accounts that they will be banned under fresh guidelines issued following abuse of Kate and Meghan — the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex.
Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace said that they could involve the police if there was a breach of the law. Under the new recommendations, comments must not “become defamatory… obscene, offensive, threatening, abusive, hateful, inflammatory or promote sexually explicit material or violence.
“We reserve the right to cover or delete comments made on our channels, and also block users who do not follow these recommendations,” it added. “We also reserve the right to send any comments we deem appropriate to law enforcement authorities for investigation as we feel necessary or is required by law.”
Almost 1,000 online posts have been deleted, according to reports. The royal family have not pointed out any specific online problems, but English gossip publication Hello! last month reported that royal staff were spending hours every week eliminating abusive posts sent by ‘rival’ supporters of each duchess, amid reports that the two had fallen out.
Tabloids reported that Meghan made sister-in-legislation Kate cry during preparations for her wedding last year with Prince Harry. The family denies a rift, and insists that Harry and Meghan’s plan to move out from Irving next door to his brother Prince William and Kate is definitely driven by the imminent introduction of their 1st child, due next month.
