The Royal Family is “on edge” over the racist online abuse of Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

“The Royal Family is forced to be monitoring their social media feeds 24/7 because of all of the racist hate that Meghan has been receiving. It has become a great problem,” a palace insider said.

“It is a good thing that the royal family does not allow personal social media accounts. But because of this these racists are coming for them on their public social media, which is meant to give updates on the entire family.”

According to the source, “everyone is on edge right now and Meghan and Harry have also beefed up security on them specifically.”

“This was not something she ever even thought about when joining the royal family.”

Last week, the royal family issued a strict set of guidelines directed at anyone who is engaging with any of their social media channels.

Among the new set of rules, the guidelines state that “comments must not contain spam, be defamatory of any person, deceive others, be obscene, offensive, threatening, abusive, hateful, inflammatory or promote sexually explicit material or violence.”

In addition, the guidelines state that “comments must not promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.”

The racial dilemma was first reported by CNN, in an article which stated, “

Kensington Palace staff are devoting more resources to deleting comments targeting Meghan, and blocking abusive Twitter and Instagram accounts. Software is being used to filter out the use of the n-word as well as emojis of guns and knives.”
