Both Instagram and Twitter accounts now boldly state: “The official account of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, based at Kensington Palace.”
Enthusiastic royalists were quick to comment on the regal changes, with one fan tweeting: “I got used to ‘Kensington Palace,’ but the new name is probably more appropriate.”
Another person stated: “Finally, they changes their username on their social media accounts (Instagram and Twitter) but I was very surprised that "The" didn't happen to their titles on Instagram.”
A third person added: "I like that - comes across as more personal!"
Wills and Kate’s Instagram now boasts 11.8million followers, while their Twitter account has 1.9 million followers.
The royal renaming comes after Wills and Kate recently changed their profile pic on both Twitter and Instagram.
Following the launch of the clap for carers movement, the couple updated their photo with a snap of themselves and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
“Yayy! I love how the entire RF is getting better and better at social media. But I hope the name ‘kensingtonroyal’ is never changed, I love it so much,” a fan wrote at the time.
