Britain's royal family has issued a social media guideline after repeated cases of online abuse directed at Duchesses Meghan and Kate.

They urged netizens to extend "courtesy, kindness and respect" while interacting online.

It also bans any "obscene, offensive, threatening, abusive, hateful" and discriminatory posts.

 

The royal family added that it reserved the right to delete comments, block users and report abuse to the police if anyone violated the guidelines.
