Big news: the Danish royal family is on social media

This is something I never in my wildest dreams thought would happen. Yes, Denmark is has a very modern monarchy with a royal family like no other place in the world. Still, things keep as usual. Almost. Today great news were announced. The Danish royal family has embraced the modern technology by entering social media. We are now able to follow the royal family's whereabouts on both Facebook, here, and Instagram, here. Personally, it is something I have been waiting for in years. Something I never thought would become a reality. Now it is in fact the reality. Today, at 12:00 pm the first picture was posted showing the Queen in her residence. The picture is takin by her oldest son, Crown Prince Frederik. I am truly looking forward to keep up with the family on social media.

  1. It is just amazing that within a day time there are far over 50.000 followers. I think I was number 80 or so, can you imagine, as I heard about it pretty quickly from a royalty photographer.

    1. Well, good news spread quickly ;) It is almost unbelievable how fast they got so many followers. I joined the club a few hours after it was launched and at that time they had about 2,500 followers. Think it is a success!

    1. You are very welcome!

      About your other question; I'm more than happy to answer it. The short version is, which is the one I'll give you, that the department Royalista was a part of was closed down and unfortunately didn't they find a new buyer to Royalista as a concept. In my opinion, I think it would have been the most appropriate for them to tell you what happened; why they suddenly closed it all down. Now you have my explanation :) ...and yes I contributed to the writings. A great experience!
