‘Be careful what you say now…’: Kate Middleton and Prince William launch YouTube channel

‘Be careful what you say now…’: Kate Middleton and Prince William launch YouTube channel

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have become YouTubers, launching their own channel.

Their channel was launched on Wednesday with a 25-second video montage of the couple at various events on behalf of the monarchy, including Kate trying her hand at archery, Prince William flying a helicopter, and the couple on their official visit to Bhutan.

“By the way, you have to be careful what you say now because these guys, they’re filming everything,” William warns Kate.

“I know!” she says.

The compilation ends with a clip of Kate candidly telling her husband, “You didn’t need to roll your r’s.”

“Do I not?” William responds.

Fans also get to see a few clips of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II and William and Kate’s three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

It will surely be a refreshing new outlet of communication for the popular royal couple who work solidly as a pair (as they always have) and seem fully at ease on camera. And it’s a natural move; the pandemic has seen much of their events now taking place digitally so it makes sense to have a dedicated channel for this very reason. They already have over 200,000 followers.

The move is similar to when Queen launched her own channel on the platform in 2007 by way of promoting the royal family. The concept of video-sharing was reportedly explained to her by her granddaughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
