Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are expected to “struggle” with social media.

Prince William and Kate Middleton already said that they banned iPads at home. Aside from this, their kids might not be able to enjoy social media unlike other children their age and this may pose a challenge to them. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s kids may or may not experience the same as they are way down the succession line.

“It’s going to be a really big struggle for them,” royal expert Omid Scobie said on Yahoo Style UK’s “The Royal Box.” “They are born into this age of social media, so it won’t be like us where it’s come into our lives slightly older and that’s going to be very much William and Kate’s duty to protect them from that other world out there.”

“Royal Box” presenter Kate Thornton asked if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s kids might be at a disadvantage because most children their age will have access to social media.

“They can’t in the same way post, share, like and comment,” she said.

Scobie emphasized that social media can have a negative impact on mental health, so it’s understandable for Prince William and Middleton to keep their children away from it. Sarah Ferguson and Markle have already spoken out how social media makes it difficult to determine real and photoshopped images and this will be an “even bigger challenge” to young children.

Hello! magazine’s Chloe Best also reported earlier that it’s unlikely for Prince Charles to allow his grandchildren to use social media due to its negative effects. The Prince of Wales and the other members of the royal family, who are dubbed working royals, do not maintain private social media accounts.

The Duchess of Sussex used to have private Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. However, she decided to delete them months before marrying Prince Harry. Markle also shut down her popular blog, The Tig.

In related news, Prince William, Middleton, Markle and Prince Harry reunited at Prince Charles’ investiture. Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte’s parents took the center stage while the pregnant duchess and “grim-faced” Prince Harry were positioned behind them.​
