The tweet appeared at 8:30PM, but was swiftly removed by palace officials. The Royal Palace is adamant. The tweet wasn't shared by King Filip. It wasn't posted by the Royal Palace, not even inadvertently by a palace official who mixed up his own and the official account.
Had the Royal Palace's Twitter account been hacked? Palace spokesman Pierre-Emmanuel De Bauw told VRT News that this was not the case. The Palace still has access to the account and the password is not shared outside a small circle.
The Royal Palace intends to report the matter to Twitter and hopes the experience will not be repeated.
