The Palace has registered web addresses in names of the Royal Family to stop people cashing-in on their identity and has bought about 30 websites including earlandcountessofwessex.com, princessbeatrice.org and thedukeofedinburgh.org, earlier this month, the Mirror reported.
As part of an ongoing bid to stop others from setting up sites in the royals' names, they have paid about 5-30 pounds for each website.
A spokesman said Buckingham Palace confirmed that they have purchased a selection of web addresses to make sure no-one else uses them and added that they may use them in the future, but there are no immediate plans.
