Prince Harry and Meghan Markle join Instagram

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have joined Instagram, setting up their own account on the social media platform.

The Sussexes first post, shared on the afternoon, quickly attracted attention.

153,000 people followed the account in the first hour of its launch.

More than 30,000 accounts liked their initial post within half an hour of it going online.

The post features the couple in several images, meeting with members of the public and engaging in projects.

The launch of the account follows an increasing trend by Harry and Meghan to split away from William and Kate, ITV News Royal Editor Chris Ship says.

It was earlier announced by the Queen that the couple will get their own court inside the Royal Family as they split from Harry’s older brother and his wife, the launch of the social media account being a step toward this.
