Your Instagram feed is about to get hot Royal injection with the addition of a brand new account belonging to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. That’s Meghan and Harry, in case high falutin titles turn you off. Meghan used to have an Insta before she tore Michael K’s beating heart from his chest and stomped on it with a nude Manolo Blahnik by taking Harry off the market. But according to People, she deleted all her social media accounts in January of last year. But she’s back now, hand in hand with her man, and they’re probably sifting through about million SponCon contracts as we speak. Her post baby Tummy Tea ads are going to earn enough cash to keep the lights on at Buckingham Palace for decades to come!
Even though we all know that’s not actually going to happen, it’s still fun to imagine Meghan and Harry acting like basic bitches on IG. However, the reality is, their official account will be very boring.
“Welcome to our official Instagram; we look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements, and the opportunity to shine a light on key issues. We thank you for your support, and welcome you to @sussexroyal.”- Harry & Meghan
Of their nine debut photos, there’s not a single selfie, casual candid, Snap filter, or outfit of the day shot. That’s because Meghan and Harry probably have to drop their cellphones in a bag at the front door every time they enter one of the royal residences. If Meghan or Harry want to take a picture of something, they probably have fill out a requisition form, in triplicate, hand it to some director of operations, and then after a three day waiting period, somebody delivers a DSLR camera with no memory chip for them to play with. And by that time, the moment has passed.
Meghan and Harry are currently only following 21 accounts, all of them various charities and organizations. The only “people” they follow are Charles and Camilla (Clarence House), William and Kate (Kensington Palace), Prince Andrew (The Duke of York) and The Royal Family which is a catchall account. Like many things “royal”, it’s all pretty incestuous. According to People:
Harry and Meghan’s own Instagram account is the first step in their transition to a new office. They have also been removed from the official Kensington Palace Twitter account, which now has a profile picture of William, Kate and their three children. The Twitter bio has also been changed to read: “The official account of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Royal Foundation, based at Kensington Palace.”
At any rate, if you’re hoping to get a follow from Meghan and Harry, you better start your prince or princess hunt now. And be quick about it. Former Hot Slut Of The Week Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary isn’t going to stay single forever!
