Not only KP Twitter. KP Instagram is bad too. Are the royals' social media sites monitored by their staff?

That question has been raised....why KP doesn't delete the nasty posts.

Very impressive and very true speech by The Duke of Cambridge today. Social media outlets need tons of tough love when it comes to cyber-bullying. I wish he could make an official trip to the U.S.A and extend his work here.

Us older folks are blessed that we didn’t have social media websites when we were in school. Now these outlets have to work extremely hard to make sure kids of today don’t have to deal with it. Trouble is Facebook, Twitter and Internet forums aren’t doing enough. On top of that, you got all that bullying going on in school.

HA...I guess any of us over 50 would count?

I can't imagine dealing with it back then...just school itself was bad enough...add cell phones and social media..nightmare!

Got lucky..my kids were towards the end of school before it got crazy (I think pre-FB)...cell phones were still expensive so they only had a pre-paid type for emergencies.

I don't understand when people let their kids have access to cell phones and social media. I think it's just asking for trouble.

Some forums are set up to highlight the gossipy aspect of royal life.

I know I have used aggressive language here and have been called on it. As a perhaps silly person, I thought I may have seen my posts as more jocular than they came across, and they came across as nasty and mean-spirited and not in keeping with the desired cordiality that the admins and mods strive to maintain.


Now, I hope I think more carefully about what I say. I like that the Cambridges are addressing internet behavior.

Yeah, the 80’s and 90’s were my school days.

Well, the kids having cell phones are a good thing, because parents have to look after their children more today than back in the day. It’s just that these social media sites don’t seem to want to heavily police their sites when it comes to the bullying. I mean...kids are going through so much nowadays and the constant bullying are causing kids to take their lives or take someone’s life.

I’m glad that the young royals are shining a light on cyber-bullying, but there’s so much work to be done.

I’m glad the moderators on this forum make sure they lookout for any sign of bullying here.

As someone that was constantly bullied as a child, the Royal Foundation project on cyberbullying ranks right up there in the top 3 causes that this Foundation aims to call attention to.

Actually, the experience of being bullied can be something empowering if, and its a big if, there is positive support. To this day I can still hear my dad telling me "if they don't like you, that's *their* problem". As I grew older and ventured into the newly minted "chat" rooms, it didn't take me long to realize that those that hid behind their monitor screens and found it "cool" to insult people, drop four letter word bombs and generally were pure negativity proved my dad right. Its *their* problem.

Whether its the schoolyard at recess or Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or anywhere, what is most important is for the one being bullied to come to the realization that those that do bully people aren't worth any rent free space in their heads and they have the power to ignore, use the delete key or as someone very special says to me "walk on by, head held high".

One good option is to use social media as little as possible or not at all.
Ignorance can be blissfully liberating.

This is something I think those serving with the RAF will really enjoy. William will most likely be greeted as one of their own. A lot of nostalgia and story swapping going on while the wives and husbands of the RAF crews will sit back and roll their eyes at the "tall tales".

I think William and Kate will really enjoy this trip.

Kensington palace said: “Their Royal Highnesses wish to deliver a message of support to deployed personnel and to acknowledge and honour the fact that many serving personnel are away from their families at this time of the year.

“Approximately 7,500 military personnel are currently serving overseas or away from home on exercises. A large portion of these have children who will have a parent away over the festive period.”

Great to see them ramp up their engagements.

I don't believe that the Cambridges will join QEII in videotaping and broadcasting the annual Christmas message.



I believe that the couple will be sharing good tidings of the Christmas season for the military members and their families.
