The Royal Birth in Clarence House Tweets: It's Weirdly Normal!

Here's something we learned today: Kate and Will's official Clarence House Twitter is surprisingly fun -- and normal.

Depending on how excited you were for the royal birth, you may or may not have been watching the live stream of the doors of St. Mary’s Hospital in London where Kate Middleton delivered or following @ClarenceHouse on Twitter. As the official Twitter feed for the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka, Kate and Will), the Clarence House reports pictures, videos and news.

We expected the tweets to be a bit bland, but instead, they’re kind of fun -- and, dare we say it -- normal. Especially in comparison to the social outlets of the British Monarchy. While the monarchy does have an Instagram (wow!), their Twitter feed features tweets updates such as: "The Duke of Kent will attend a reception for the winners of The Queen's Award for Enterprise." 

From encouraging royal fans to sign a Google+ congrats card or a request to hear about other royal babies born today (complete with a #WelcometotheWorld hashtag), we might still be following @ClarenceHouse tomorrow. Here, the royal birth in tweets.
