AMMAN — The Hashemite Royal Court issued a statement today on the use of social media accounts by Royal Family members.

The statement clearly indicated that any opinions expressed in social media by Royal Family members, except official statements by the Royal Court, His Majesty King Abdullah and HRH Crown Prince Al Hussein, express the personal opinions of those who hold the social media account, respectively.

Here is the full statement:

In light of the increasing use of various media outlets and social media platforms to express views and opinions, including by Royal Family members, many of whom occupy positions in international organizations and NGOs and rely on media outlets and social media tools to convey their points of view and positions, the Royal Hashemite Court asserts that any statements, opinions or comments made by Royal Family members (except official statements issued by the Royal Hashemite Court or through the media and social media channels of His Majesty King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II) strictly express the personal views of those individuals, as Royal Family members are entitled, like any Jordanian citizen, to express their personal opinions.
