Meghan Markle closes her social media accounts

There was a small glimmer of hope that Meghan Markle would bring an inside look to the British Royal Family through her social media accounts, much to the same way some of the European families function. Alas, that hope has been extinguished as Kensington Palace has confirmed that the bride-to-be has closed her Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Meghan Markle came to the choice since they “haven’t been used for some time.”

When Prince Harry’s and her relationship became more serious, she made the decision to stop her lifestyle blog, The Tig, back in April 2017.

The actress and humanitarian had over 350,000 Twitter followers, 800,000 likes on her Facebook page and 1.9 million people following her on Instagram.


Kensington Palace confirmed the closure of her accounts on Tuesday after Prince Harry and Meghan visited community radio station Reprezent in Brixton.

Meghan is already a style-star having much of the same effect that her future sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, has on fashion. Wearing a Marks & Spencer jumper, the black belled sleeved shirt is already sold out. She also wore Burberry trousers and a Smythe coat.

During the visit, Meghan spoke to presenter YV Shells who she praised for his work promoting woman at the station, saying:  “Empowering the women to make sure they’re in a space where it’s not as much [male] driven, to be the man there supporting I think that’s incredible.”

Another DJ Jeremiah Asiamah spoke about the “power couple” after meeting them. Adding on about Meghan, he said: “She’s beautiful, such an amazing character, if there’s any way you could describe a power couple in this modern day and age, it’s definitely them.”

Another presenter at Reprezent, Jevanni Letford, was cheeky and slipped Prince Harry his business card as the couple walked past. In a tweet, Jevanni said it was to “secure that #weddingdj gig”. Clever!
