Prince Harry and Meghan Markle send fans into a frenzy as they launch their own Instagram account
For quite a while now, we've been denied the unique experience of hanging out with Meghan Markle on Instagram.
Ever since news broke that she was dating Prince Harry - back then, thoughts of a Royal Wedding were but a mere pipe dream - Markle had started to remove herself from the public eye.
She signed off from her food blog The Tig, she left the USA television show Suits where she made her name, and wouldn't you know it, we missed her. Occasionally she'd appear in someone else's post or news of her awesomeness would get filtered through to us, but it... just isn't the same.
But, if you're one of those people who can't get enough of Harry and Meghan, then boy, do I have news for you: the pair are launching their own Instagram account!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, 34 and 37 respectively, announced the launch of a Sussex Royal account, which will be run independently of the account for Harry's brother Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Although it's already racked up 290,000 followers in such a short space of time, there's only one photo so far - this one, of the pair's joint monogram, plus a montage of the amazing moments the couple have already shared together:
They captioned the post:
"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."
People, as you might imagine, are going pretty crazy for the news. Let's just take a sample of the comments on this one. "Finally, the one and only account that will present informative, accurate and truly 'need to know' information. Thank-you for sharing with us on this social media platform. Best wishes to you both!" said @kirstin_davidson, while @ivan_maina wrote: "very happy to see you guys get your own pages!"
What's more: even the official Instagram Instagram account got in on the act, showing the necessary deference for the Royal Couple. "Ummm... hello! Welcome ❤️ We are so happy you are here," Instagram wrote on Instagram, and it's safe to say that everyone's thrilled to see Harry and Meghan on the social media site!
This news comes hot on the heels that Harry and Meghan would be getting their own royal household, separate from that of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
According to Emily Nash at HELLO! Magazine, the Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal household "will ensure that permanent support arrangements for the Duke and Duchess's work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage."
Well, Harry and Meghan fans, what are you waiting for? If you've got an itching desire to learn more about the inner lives of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, there's only one Instagram account you should be following.
