Follow for a follow? Those interested in learning more about the royals in 140 characters at a time, got a real treat on Wednesday, Jan. 14, when the official handle @KensingtonRoyal was created. 

The account will focus on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton and William’s younger brother Prince Harry

“Hello from Kensington Palace! Welcome to our new Twitter account,” the first tweet read. “This account represents The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry – follow for updates on their work and the #RoyalFoundation.”

Since its inception, the handle has posted a series of tweets, mostly surrounding the Coach Core charity — a London-based apprenticeship “giving young people aged 16-24 living in London the chance to become the next generation of inspirational coaches.”

To celebrate the charity, Prince Harry met with New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony to congratulate the graduates of the program. The handle also shared a funny picture of Harry posing with former NBA star Dikembe Mutombo

“Prince Harry stands on tiptoes but still fails to measure up to 7ft 2in @officialmutombo at #Coachcore graduation,” the caption reads. 

@KensingtonPalace joins existing royal handles @BritishMonarchy and @ClarenceHouse. An official Instagram account also debuted on Wednesday.
