It’s been a busy few weeks for the royal family, and their social media accounts are certainly reflecting that.
Both the Sussexes and Cambridges have hit a social media milestone, each surpassing 11 million followers on Instagram — though Meghan and Harry’s following has now inched ahead.
The Cambridges’ follow count is trailing behind slightly with 11,031,000.
The royal couples previously shared the Kensington Royal Instagram and Twitter accounts.
However, Harry and Meghan branched out and created their own in April 2019, with Kate and William keeping the shared account.
Since announcing their decision to step back from senior royal duties, the Sussexes gained almost half a million followers in a few days.
The duo held the Guinness world record for reaching a following of over one million in just five hours and 45 minutes after launching the account.
On both accounts, the ‘following’ list is a little slim compared to the ‘followers’.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex currently only follow one account: Good News Movement. The page is run by journalists and according to their account is a “journalist-run page for GOOD NEWS ONLY”.
Harry, 35 and Meghan, 38 change who they follow monthly, to highlight and promote highlight different causes.
William, 37 and Kate, 38, follow just under 100 accounts, including charities and organisations the couple works with.
Despite facing a lot of criticism from the media, fans on Harry and Meghan’s Instagram page are showing their support through comments on the page, where they still continue to post about about the supported charities and causes they support.
