Harry & Meghan’s New Instagram Account Sets Guinness World Record

Last month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, commonly referred to as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, made headlines for their plan to establish their own royal household to distinguish themselves from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate Middleton).

The couple, and the Duchess in particular, has become famous for what appears to be a more modern approach to royal duty. In subtle ways, through her work ethic, fashion, and embrace of the public, Meghan Markle has refreshed the notoriously conservative royal family.

A new Instagram page is the latest indication of these trends. As part of the launch of the new household, Meghan and Harry have begun their own joint account. Already, @sussexroyal has nearly 3 million followers, setting a Guinness World Record for the fastest-ever Instagram account to gain over a million followers. That happened in the first 6 hours. The expected arrival of a new royal might be fueling much of the interest.
