Kate Middleton and Prince William have jumped on the social media bandwagon.

The royal couple as well as Prince Harry have officially joined Twitter and can be followed at @KensingtonRoyal. The account will focus on the day-to-day happenings of the British royals.

The big announcement was made by the Buckingham Palace on 14 January. A tweet was posted on the palace's official Twitter page, @BritishMonarchy. "Welcome, @KensingtonRoyal the official Twitter account for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry," read the tweet.

The Twitter handle will bring updates from Kensington Palace and the Royal Foundation. This will reportedly bring into limelight the constructive efforts of the royalty to promote goodwill. The account has already posted 21 tweets and has been followed by more than 94.2K people. The latest tweet reads as, "Tomorrow The Duchess of Cambridge will officially name the @TheArtRoomUK at Barlby Primary School in #London."

Most of the other tweets revolve around Coach Core Charity, a London-based charity which engages young people via sports activities. To promote the charity, Prince Harry met the professional coaches and the NBA players. In one of the pictures posted by the account admin, Prince Harry can be seen posing with former NBA star Dikembe Mutombo.

"Prince Harry stands on tiptoes but still fails to measure up to 7ft 2in @officialmutombo at #Coachcore graduation," reads the tweet.

Meanwhile, the Royals have also joined Instagram - a photo and video sharing mobile app. An account has been created under the name of @KensingtonRoyal. So far, only two photos have been uploaded by the account admin. One of them shows Prince Harry standing with NBA player Dikembe Mutombo, while the other shows the outside view of St. James Palace. The caption alongside the picture reads as:

"Prince Harry, joined by NBA All-star Carmelo Anthony, presented the first #Coachcore programme graduates with their certificates at St James's Palace today. #Coachcore is a programme developed by the #RoyalFoundation to train young people who are struggling to find positive prospects, to become professional sports coaches and mentors."

The British monarchy's fans are clearly excited about the royal couple's decision to venture into social media space. It is expected that the first picture of the second royal baby will also be revealed via these social media accounts.
