Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have a fancy Netflix deal, but they’re not the only royal couple getting into the content game. Prince William and Kate Middleton are now on YouTube, and their first video includes the type of candid, flirty moments we typically don’t see from them.
Posted on Wednesday, May 5, “Welcome to our official YouTube channel!” is the first video from the newly created account for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It’s just a 25-second video, but it gives viewers a glimpse of the couple’s travels and events, which will presumably be documented and shared on the new channel. “By the way, be careful what you say now, because these guys, they’re filming everything,” Prince William says cheekily to Middleton, who smiles and says, “I know!” My heart.
Later in the video, there’s an outtake from the couple’s Saint Patrick’s Day video. Dressed in green, Middleton tells her husband, “You don’t need to roll your r.”
The description of the video points viewers toward video playlists including “Mental Health,” “The Early Years,” and the couple’s “Engagements,” all populated with videos from the royal family’s YouTube account. In the past, videos from the family have all gone up there and been shared to the Cambridge’s Instagram and Twitter pages when appropriate. The fact that they now have their own separate YouTube page makes us think they’re going to start sharing more, and more often. But that’s just a guess.
The couple recently celebrated their 10-year wedding anniversary with—what else?—a cute video! There’s no banter, but in the 40-second clip, they play, hike, and roast marshmallows with their three children. It’s basically the world’s most effective J.Crew ad, and we mean that in the most positive sense. Seems Prince William and Kate Middleton have caught the vlogger bug.
Keep being photogenic, you two!
