Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton fight forces Palace to issue guidelines on tackling trolls

Pregnant Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s rumoured fight left the internet divided, with people abusing both the Duchesses online and making serious racist comments against Meghan.

Now, the British Royal family has finally decided to take action against Meghan and Kate’s abusers. The Palace has released a set of social media guidelines.

According to reports, the British Royal family has announced that social media users need to show “courtesy, kindness and respect” when interacting on online posts.

On Monday, the family apparently released a set of guidelines for anyone engaging with their social media channels and said that they will ban any “obscene, offensive, threatening, abusive, hateful and discriminatory posts.”

After the rumours of Kate and pregnant Meghan’s alleged tiff started doing the rounds on social media, the abuse also started escalating.

The Palace is also seeking help from social media firms to combat this situation.

They have decided to block, delete and report abusers who will go against the guidelines.

Reportedly, most of the abuse and racist comments are directed towards Meghan. The step was taken apparently to create a healthy and safe environment.

The Duchess of Sussex, who is pregnant with her first child, will welcome her baby in April 2019. Reports earlier stated that the abuse and criticism is taking a toll on her, as she is still trying to adjust to the Royal life.
