Prince William: Social Media Must ‘Regulate’ Conspiracy Theories

Prince William warns that social media companies must eliminate conspiracy theories from their platforms

Prince William has vowed to pressure the UK government to regulate social media and purge it of damaging ‘conspiracy theories’.

The Duke of Cambridge claims the Royal Family are “routinely targeted” by online trolls as a result of conspiracies written about them.

Speaking at the Children’s Trust and Skillforce on Monday night, the Prince also explained concerns that children are victims of information overload on the Internet.

“On top of this, there is a sense of being ‘on call’ 24/7 through social media, and the subsequent strains this can have on relationships, home life and, ultimately, a child’s sense of their own self-worth. It can all take its toll.” 

Rt.com reports: “Role-modelling and giving a child the tools of courage, discipline and resilience are a demonstration of great love and commitment to that child’s success in life. If you are not taught these skills at a young age, it can be very, very difficult to learn them as an adult,” he said.

Resilience is a quality required by the royal family, who have the minutiae of their lives pored over by the tabloid press. The internet has provided yet another platform on which to pass judgement on their outfits, choice of partners, and indeed the whole point of the monarchy.

1. Prince George’s privilege

On Monday, a woman accused of a “distastefully” describing Kate and William’s son Prince George as the face of “white privilege” was denied compensation after being sacked by the British Council.

Angela Gibbins, who earned £80,000 ($105,000) a year as head of global estates at the charity, which promotes Britain’s image worldwide, was sacked for gross misconduct following her “distasteful and personal attack” on the heir to the throne.

The case related to a picture of Prince George, which was originally posted by the band Dub Pistols with the caption: “I know he’s only two years old, but Prince George looks like a f***ing d***head.”

The meme sparked a debate in the comments section, in which Gibbins chipped in, saying: “White privilege. That cheeky grin is the (already locked-in) innate knowledge that he’s Royal, rich, advantaged and will never know any difficulties or hardships in life.

“Let’s find photos of 3yo Syrian refugee children and see if they look alike, eh?”

2. Overpopulation? How many kids do you have? 

Last week, William himself was trolled online over his comments about overpopulation.  Although the duke was speaking about the protection of wildlife, social-media users couldn’t help pointing out that he and Kate are expecting a third child.

It also got pretty nasty for Kate on social media when she announced that she was pregnant again in September. Some anti-monarchy trolls called the unborn child a “parasite,” because of the cost to taxpayers of maintaining the family.

3. Racist smear?

Kensington Palace was forced to issue an unprecedented statement last year, approved by Prince Harry, denouncing the“wave of abuse” to which his girlfriend Meghan Markle and her family were subjected before the relationship was even confirmed.

“Some of this [harassment] has been very public,” the palace’s statement said. “The smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.”

    you would think after having his mother murdered by the Alumanati’s Lap Dogs, he would stand up for disclosure on everything and would not use some moron’s freedom of speech to gag those telling the truth.

      This really must be table-talk with his inept dad.

  • clarioncaller

    The Royal Jelly Family have done such a great job of protecting the British people. The Windsors [real name Guelph] are impostors to the throne and have no legal rights to their position. This historical charade needs to be exposed once and for all.

      The family at the palace needs to get some real jobs.

  • Pete C

    A rich person born into privilege telling us commoners how to think and to behave, that Royalty is scandal free and they are full of virtue …

    Not only are they neck deep in alleged kiddie fiddling, which is unproven yet, but it is a fact they are one of the largest estate holders in the world and horde their wealth overseas to avoid the tax man. Proven!
