Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William are trying to make the Royal Family “more relatable”, according to commentators. The future king and queen consort’s new YouTube channel has been praised as a “cool approach” for the younger members of the monarchy. Royally Us podcast hosts Christina Garibaldi and Molly Mulshine discussed how this was different from the “precedent” set before.

Ms Garibaldi told listeners: “I love this, I love seeing a different side of them.

“I think that this probably is long overdue.

“I would have loved to see this like years and years ago but better late than never.”

The YouTube channel is Kate and William’s third social media account, in addition to their Twitter and Instagram, and has amassed over half a million subscribers already.

Ms Mulshine said: “It’s really cool and it seems like it’s not just going to be the typical boring, PR-approved royal videos.

“It looks like it’s going to be fun videos where they’re joking around.

“There are two moments in that first 25-second intro video where William and Kate are giggling together and we never see that.

“So I think this is a really cool move for them.”

Ms Garibaldi agreed, adding: “The first couple of videos after were mostly about her Hold Still campaign.

“But I am definitely looking forward to those light-hearted playful moments.

“Of course recently we saw that video that they released with their family.”

She continued: “So it seems like they’re a little bit more relatable in a certain sense, which I love, and I think that’s what the monarchy needs.

“The Royal Family needs us to be able to relate to them a little bit more, so I think this is great.”

Ms Mulshine told the podcast: “It just shows how they’re sort of evolving beyond the precedent that was set in the last century.

“That was about keeping the monarchy at an arm’s length.

“They’re being so much more open and it’s a cool approach.”
