Meghan & Harry Are Officially On Instagram!

    Make way - and smash that follow button - for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have officially joined Instagram this week. 

    After the announcement that Meghan and Harry would split from Kensington Palace, where they had originally joined Will and Kate, it makes sense that they would need their own social media accounts. After all, they've now launched their own royal initiatives, make public appearances all over the world, and, more importantly, are about to start their own family. And their little prince of princess certainly isn't going to want to be sharing the spotlight with that sassy Prince George.

    The first official Instagram post, featuring a series of photos of Meghan and Harry, comes with a message from the Duke and Duchess themselves:

    "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."

    While we're sure the account will be run by some appointed Knight of Social Media or whatever, the move does mark an exciting return to the digital realm for Meghan, who said farewell to her Twitter, Instagram, and lifestyle website The Tig before saying "I do" last year. You never know - we just might get a more intimate look inside the lives of Meghan and Harry. If anything, we're practically guaranteed plenty of royal baby pics once he or she arrives.
