Did something feel different when you woke up this morning? Perhaps the air you're breathing feels more sophisticated, shinier somehow? If so, there's a reason: As of about 5 a.m., the atmosphere has been buzzing with royal tweets. That's right: Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harry are now on Twitter.

The British Monarchy's official account announced the news this morning with a tweet introducing the royals' new joint account, @KensingtonRoyal:

This, of course, won't be the first time a member of the royal family has tweeted. Prince Harry sent out a message last year and the Queen is all been there, done that, got 43K retweets, dudes:

But what will this feed look like?!?! @KensingtonRoyal has already posted a bunch of tweets that are of the more impersonal, general royal news variety, but maybe, maaaybe that's only because Kate, Wills, and Harry haven't yet been fully trained on the Twitters? Perhaps once they've got the hang of the 140 characters thing, we'll see tweets straight from their fingers? And if so, how will we know who's responsible for the thing? Will they sign each tweet with initials or a nickname ("-KM," "-P.Dubs," "-GingerPrince," "-HRH2B," "Harry"?), or just leave us guessing?

Below, some tweets we're expecting to see on the @KensingtonRoyal's feed:

Teehee. —William
