He used to have a Facebook account (under a different name) but he had to close it. Other than that.. I don’t know.

There are lots of rumours that Harry has an IG account under the name SpikeyMau2. Spikey has only a few followers but pops up on the accounts and FB of people like Arthur Landon, and the Housekeeping account of Jacobi Calthorpe, and several other friends, commenting on various instagrams and other matters.

Years ago Harry and Chelsy both had Facebook accounts (his was under the name of Spike Wells.) Both were quite open and easy to hack into and fans began taking photos and comments from their face wall. As soon as his cover was blown Spike closed his account. A lot of Harry fans believe that SpikeyMau is Harry, being very cautious and discreet. He 'liked' instagrams of Chelsy that were posted by Jacobi a while ago.

Oooh, that's interesting information. Especially the bit about him liking Chelsy stuff.

Couldn't find a Spikeymau2. However I could find a Spikeymau5 and that user has a private account.

That's him, or who is thought to be Harry. Sorry about the mistake! Brain Freeze!
Harry and Chelsy had some interesting comments to make on their FB's in the old days and many photos were posted, African landscapes, Harry sitting above a yacht, with his friends, etc.

They are still in touch, and through Jacobi and Arthur Landon Harry may also keep in touch with Cressida, I suppose. Her IG account is cressbo but it's also private.

I can't blame them for making their accouts private. Heck... mine is private and I'm not famous. Would be interesting to see the photo's though.

I tried to find "spikeymau5" on Instagram but it's a private account, and I haven't been able to find people like Jacobi Calthorpe so I can't see when he comments on their photos. Does he accept requests? I've always been intrigued to know how royal watchers have found out whose photos Spikey has commented on and liked.

Given the fact that he comments on his friend's photos and was Spike Wells on Facebook (and I read that "Spike" is his Eton nickname), I think it's quite likely that Spikey from Instagram is Harry. He also hasn't got a photo of him where his face is visible on his profile picture, and on the other personal accounts of royals I've stumbled across, I've noticed that some of them do this as well for security reasons. But, who knows, it's easy to pretend to be someone on social media.

Maybe its just me but I would think that should Harry have a social media account anywhere, he would guard the privacy of that with his life and limb. So much of what he does and where he goes and who he sees ends up in the public glare that he would do as much as possible to keep it personal and private.

I wouldn't dream of intruding or trying to intrude on anyone's social media unless I knew for certain that my presence would be welcomed.

I also think he might have an account under a fake name.

My cat is called Spike. He's also ginger! :) NOT named after Harry.

...Nearly all of Europe’s ruling houses have accounts on major social media sites – in fact, it’s more rare to find one that doesn’t use at least one of the main outlets. When it comes to Twitter followers, the Royal Family leads with way with 1.36 million following the @BritishMonarchy account.

Clarence House has 492,000 followers and @KensingtonRoyal has built up an audience of 564,000 since joining in January this year.

That figure is perhaps not surprising given that in the last nine months there have been several major events for the account to highlight including the birth and christening of Princess Charlotte and Prince Harry’s visit to New Zealand and Australia. And despite being the newest royal account, Kensington Royal has the highest following on photo centred Instagram – 668k compared to Clarence House’s 126k.

Our Royal Family isn’t the only one to use a wide range of social media sites to share information than has been available in the past. This summer, Sweden’s Royal Family joined Instagram adding the account to its already popular Facebook and You Tube presence. Since it launched earlier this year it’s picked up almost 84,000 followers while Princess Madeleine of Sweden makes good use of social media, often sharing new photos of her children on her Facebook site.

For me the best royal sites is the Danish and the Dutch. Agree about the Belgian need more improvement. Somehow he fix after Philip but wants more work. What I do not like is the Norwegian.

I think that also the spanish royal site should be updated. The agenda is fine, but I'm still waiting for more recent photos...

What is very well done in the website is the machinery under it. The Royal House has spent 160.000 Euro for the new site, 60.000 Euro for subtitles under old videos to give access to the hearing impaired, 80.000 Euro for the copyrights for pictures and videos as well the making of new media for the coming years. The website is fully linked to RSS feeds, twitter, social media, You Tube, etc. The newest CSS and HTML5 techniques have been used to show it with speed and proper content on all possible browsers. A special format has been made for mobile sites.

One of the first appointments of the new King in 2013 was that of a Director ICT for the Royal Household Service. Until this appointment, the ICT of the Royal Household Service was part of the Prime Minister's Department. The King thought it was important that the ICT of the Royal House was fully up-to-date, with secure servers and emergency capacity. In 2014 the Royal House Organization has spent a staggering 750.000 Euro on modernization of the telecommunications infrastructure. All palaces and offices of the Royal Household have switched to an "All IP"-telephone network with enough capacity to serve online, wireless, mobile and internet applications includining emergency capacity.

I think that the ICT- and telecommunications infrastructire and the "machinery" of the internet sites of the Netherlands Royal House are the most up-to-date of all monarchies. In "looks" however, the website of the Danish monarchy is a pleasure for the eye. The Dutch site is a bit too businesslike. I want more diadems, more nice interiors, etc. More like the Danes do.

I think the Monaco website needs a desperate overhaul - for a start it needs someone to work on it full-time to keep it up to date - like they manage to do for their Facebook page. They also need to tighten up some of the translation to English.

A combination of the Danish and Dutch websites would probably be perfect. The new Dutch one is very good in the English version although it is quite corporate in it's look.

Updating always seems to be a problem with some of the sites, even a weekly update would be good.

My favourite royal website is the Danish one. It's very aesthetically pleasing and is also quite organised and clear (it's not that hard to find the info you're looking for). The runner up for me would be the Swedish website.

I find the British website easy to navigate, but I think it can look a little crowded sometimes. I'm not really keen on the Dutch, Luxembourgish, Monegasque or Belgian (it looks nice but it feels quite dated and needs more info, there also isn't a calendar and photo archive for the English version of the site) websites. I like the colours schemes of the Spanish website though I find it rather clustered.

Does anyone have the websites for the non-reigning houses? So far I can only find:

Serbia
Russia
Bourbon-Two Sicilies
The Duke of Vendome (Orleans, France)
