The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are getting things in place before their baby is born in just a few weeks. On April 2, 2019, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan launched their own Instagram account. Other members of the royal family already had their own account.

Before launching their own account, activities and news surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were posted on Kensington Palace's account @KensingtonRoyal. Now activities and news surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be posted @SussexRoyal.

Before Meghan became engaged to Prince Harry, the former Suits actress posted frequently on Instagram and Twitter. She deleted all her social media accounts, including her lifestyle blog, The Tig, before marrying Prince Harry on May 19, 2018. Now she has an official joint account with her husband, and they will be posting together things that concern both of them.

First Post

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's first post stated, "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." Along with their first post was a slideshow of nine photos that have been taken throughout their first year together as a married couple at a variety of official royal engagements.

When you go to their official Instagram account, you will see that their profile photo is not one of themselves. Instead, it is their official logo, which is an intertwined H and M written in white letters under a crown on a dark blue background.

Their first post received more than 410,000 likes by late Tuesday afternoon. No doubt whatever they post will continue to receive likes from people all over the world.

Warm Welcomes From Members of Royal Family

The couple has received well wishes from other members of the royal family, fans, and friends. Everyone is excited that they can follow the expecting parents and receive the latest news about them directly from them. No fake news will be posted on the official and verified social media account.

Kensington Palace posted an official welcome to the couple on the social media site. There is an invitation for the public to follow @SussexRoyal for the latest information about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The official account for Queen Elizabeth and other members of the royal family posted a welcome message on @TheRoyalFamily. The posting read that a new Instagram channel for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex has been launched, and the account will feature the activities of the couple. There is a reminder that the work of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge can still be seen @KensingtonRoyal for those who want to keep up to date about Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The official account for Clarence House also posted well wishes. That is the royal residence of Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla.

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York wrote, "Welcome to Instagram." The father of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie posted one of his favorite photos with him in it along with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Princess Eugenie also shared her favorite photo as the other royal family members had done. Her short and sweet message read, "Welcome cousins."

Followers and Followings

So far the royal couple is following only three accounts: @KensingtonRoyal, @TheRoyalFamily, and @ClarenceHouse. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex might follow others later. Less than an hour of the launch, over 42,000 followers had signed up for the verified Instagram account @SussexRoyal. The site is continuing to gain additional followers.

When you scroll through the list of followers, you will see many celebrities and people from all walks of life who are following the royal couple.

  • Instagram's official site was among the first to welcome the couple. It wrote, "Ummm... hello! Welcome. We are so happy you are here."
  • Travel and Leisure posted that it is the moment they have been waiting for. Their statement ended with clapping and praising hands emojis.
  • Women's Wear Daily posted, "We can't wait to welcome your bundle of joy!"
  • Meghan's best friend, stylist Jessica Mulroney, commented with two heart emojis.
  • Three big magazines welcomed the couple to the platform: Oprah Magazine, Glamour and Elle.
