In today’s royal news, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have launched their very own official YouTube channel. Yes, you read that right — Prince William and Kate Middleton are trying their hands at being YouTubers. (Featured image: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, YouTube)
Their introduction video has garnered over 1 million views in less than 24 hours, and the channel has amassed 226,000 subscribers so far (with numbers rising by the minute). Scheduled for their first video is a glimpse into Kate’s photography project, Hold Still, which was showcased at the National Portrait Gallery last year, and is about to be released as a book this week. The project reveals “a portrait of our nation in 2020”, and captures moments of hardship, but also beautiful moments of hope that happened during the pandemic. On the new YouTube channel, viewers will be able to follow an accompanying series of telephone calls that The Duchess held with participants from the book.
For now, they’ve also linked a playlist of video interviews surrounding mental health topics, and one that highlights The Duchess’ work on early childhood, addressing social challenges such as addiction, family breakdown, poor mental health, suicide and homelessness. We’re definitely curious to see what else they have in store for us. Find the channel here.
