After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle created their own Instagram account on Tuesday, it seems the couple are completely cutting ties with all of the royal family’s other social media accounts.

The couple previously shared an Instagram and Twitter account with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, under the handles @kensingtonroyal and @kensingtonpalace respectively.

Harry and Markle’s Instagram account @sussexroyal reached 2.1 million followers less than 24 hours after they published their first post on Tuesday.

Although it has not been announced whether or not they plan to join Twitter too, it appears that they will be no longer represented by the palace’s official account.

Harry and Markle have already made action towards creating their new household at Buckingham Palace, which is due to begin work in the spring.

The couple have already hired Hilary Clinton’s former presidential campaign advisor, Sarah Latham, as Head of Communications on their team.

The news caused many to believe the rumours of a feud between the couples, which first surfaced after Harry and Markle married in 2018.

However, former royal butler and etiquette expert Grant Harrold previously told INSIDER that the split was simply a “natural progression” that was bound to happen sooner or later.
