The Royal Family Is Putting an End to Internet Trolls with New Social Media Guidelines

The royal family is officially done with internet trolls.

On Monday, Kensington Palace unveiled an expansive set of social media guidelines, which they said apply to “any engagement with us or other members of the community on any of our social media channels.”

The set of rules bans any “obscene, offensive, threatening, abusive, hateful” and discriminatory posts. It also notes spam, advertisements and self-promotion will not be tolerated, along with anything “off-topic, irrelevant or unintelligible.”

Per Kensington Palace: “We ask that anyone engaging with our social media channels shows courtesy, kindness and respect for all other members of our social media communities.” Preach.

This comes after an unprecedented amount of public criticism (not to mention rumormongering) toward the royal family, especially duchesses Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. Between a fake feud and all the negativity toward Markles pregnancy, it was about time someone set some boundaries. George Clooney and Beyoncé can only do so much.

Royals: They have feelings too, guys.
