British Royals Appeal for Online Kindness after Trolling of Kate and Meghan

Britain’s royals unveiled a new protocol on Monday for users of their social media channels, asking for kindness and warning of possible police action following a rise in abusive comments, often aimed at Prince Harry’s pregnant wife Meghan.

Unveiling their “Social Media Community Guidelines”, Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace — the offices for the queen, her son and heir Prince Charles, and William and Harry — outlined what behaviour they expected from users of their channels.
. “We ask that anyone engaging with our social media channels shows courtesy, kindness and respect for all other members of our social media communities,” the guidelines said.
.

They stated that comments must not be defamatory, obscene, threatening, or abusive; be discriminatory in any way; be “off-topic, irrelevant or unintelligible” or contain advertising.
.
“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,” it said.
