Driving instructor “flattered but annoyed” after Harry & Meghan take his Instagram username



A driving instructor from West Sussex has spoken of his annoyance after the office of the Duke & Duchess of Sussex appears to have taken over his Instagram username.

Speaking to BBC News, Kevin Keiley says that he is “flattered” but “annoyed” after his account, @sussexroyal, was taken over a few days ago for the benefit of Harry & Meghan.

Mr Keiley claims that neither Instagram nor The Royal Family contacted him to say that his username was to be transferred to The Royal Household.

According to Instagram, his handle was changed without consent because the account was inactive.
