Their move to the ‘gram has made royal fans dizzy with excitement at the prospect of a glimpse of even more of their private lives and updates about their coming and going. But don’t go crazy – it is unlikely that you will come across any selfies from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex lying in bed with baby Sussex or something like that. As their first message explains, Harry and Meghan will use the account to spread awareness about their causes.
It is clear that they have a rapt audience that is eager to consume that message. The newly created account even broke a Guinness World Record within hours of the launch.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new Instagram account went viral
With just one gallery message, the account drew thousands of followers. It became so popular that it broke a Guinness World record within six hours.
Harry and Meghan do not have the most general followers for the time being, but this could change in a few weeks. On the launch day – April 2, 2019 – the account drew a million followers in 5 hours and 45 minutes. From now on, @sussexroyal has 2.5 million followers and counts.
The crazy rush to follow even caused Instagram to crash for a short time. Talking about popularity.
No one is exactly sure what kinds of things they’ll post
Unlike Kardashian Instagram accounts, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are unlikely to post sexy bikini photo shoots or promote products with sponsored ads. But they are planning to spread a message.
Their only post so far contains a gallery with images of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex engaged in various royal activities. The implication is clear – they will use one of the most popular social media platforms in the world to spread their message.
The subtitle says: “” Welcome to our official Instagram; we look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements, and the ability to shed light on important issues. We thank you for your support and welcome you to @sussexroyal. “- Harry & Meghan.”
Posts can be similar to those on @kensingtonroyal – but this time they will only focus on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their specific activities. Fans are absolutely enthusiastic about this – and it can all prove that they are really more popular than Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Who held the Instagram follower record before?
Before Harry and Meghan started to beat Guinness World Records, there were other Insta users who achieved 1 million followers in a short time. Korean pop star Kang Daniel reached the milestone with @thisisieliel_k in 11 hours and 36 minutes and was the record holder before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle came along.
