We’ll be hearing about who will be attending this year’s Commonwealth Service on the 11th at Westminster Abbey soon.

I wonder if a incoming Jordan State Visit is in the works? Or was this just a working visit?

The State Visit from the present King to the UK took place already in 2001. I do not think he will make any again for the remainder of Elizabeth II’s reign.

I thought the protocol was each head of state made no more than 1 state visit, hence why we tend to see more State Visits by presidents than monarchs - Presidents of France and Presidents of US vs monarchs.

The Royal Family has published rules for followers of its social media channels, warning that anyone who posts offensive comments will be blocked or reported to the police in the wake of escalating abuse of the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex.

The Royal Family has issued guidelines on social media to create a "safe environment" on its Twitter and Instagram channels, urging "courtesy, kindness and respect".

I can't say how glad I am that KP and CH are moving on this, and not before time. How effective it will be in the long run who knows but these trolls have to be at least blocked.

It’s about time they said something. It’s downright shameful it’s taken them this long to enact SM guidelines for posting. Meghan has been getting ripped on those platforms with little to none blowback to posters for their vile words.

This is a very much needed and responsible step being taken. The royal social media will no longer be a bridge that trolls live under and they'll go elsewhere.

I don't believe the average UK or Commonwealth citizen will care much as the notion of freedom of speech is not an inalienable right as it is u th US.

Well wonder how many abuses came from the US (like it was the case for Camilla some times ago) and from the UK / Commonwealth ...
Wait for the Daily Mail columnists in 3 - 2- 1 ...

Anyway we can all agree its a good move.

I don't think civil discourse will be affected, only those that threaten, use hate speech or are proponents of crazy conspiracy theories.

Freedom of speech in the US does not include freedom from consequences of that speech. Clearly, one of the consequences for bigoted, racist or threatening statements on the BRF's public media is getting your information turned over to the police. Sounds pretty clear to me (and an excellent and long-overdue idea, too).

Precisely. I don't know what's so hard to comprehend about what the RF issued about their social media accounts. You can have constructive criticism, you can disagree with each other, you can criticise the RF and you can even post your Republican ideas on their pages, but when it crosses the line of wishing someone dead, or wishing that a certain Duchess have a miscarriage or saying inflammatory/made up stories, then the family definitely has the right to delete or block your comment. As to turning over users information to the police, I applaud this whole heartedly. You don't threaten bodily harm on someone and don't think there will be consequences.

The more I think about it, the regulations and the standards and the rules that they've put into place on the royal family's social media sites pretty much echo what we agree to in our terms of service here and the rules and regulations put into place to keep The Royal Forums running smoothly.

As far as reporting to the police, if I'm not mistaken, in the UK, any kind of racist comment or a bodily threat towards someone in speech (written or verbally) is considered a hate crime. I'm sure someone will correct me here if I'm wrong.

Once again I applaud the actions taken. Social media sites and discussion sites like TRF set the rules. Just like when we were kids and our parents told us: "My house, my rules".

I can understand this move...there have been some crazy, vile and scary comments made on their social media about the family members.
