Wednesday July 10, 2013

The Duke of York is now following ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York on Twitter.

The second son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Andrew, Duke of York became the first member of the royal family to join Twitter under his own name on Monday.

“Welcome to my Twitter account – AY” he tweeted.

Using the handle @TheDukeOfYork, Prince Andrew has accumulated over 28,000 followers in just two days.

One of the first to welcome the royal to the social network was his former wife, Sarah Ferguson.

"@SarahTheDuchess @thedukeofyork congratulations on joining twitter,” she posted in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

It was noticeable that the Duke of York did not immediately follow his former spouse.

On Monday, the Prince was following 47 other accounts, including the British Monarchy, various charities and two golf clubs.

By Wednesday, the Duke of York had extended his following to just under 100 accounts, including the Duchess of York.
