Meghan Markle has closed her social media accounts-Twitter, Facebook and Instagram-, shortly after her first royal engagement of 2018 with her fiancé, Prince Harry.
Confirming the delete of the account, Kensington Palace said on behalf of Markle: “Grateful to everyone who has followed her social media accounts over the years” but had closed them “as she has not used these accounts for some time”.
The decision to close her social media accounts is in line with her changing status, as she will soon become a member of the royal family when she marries Harry in May.
Senior members of the monarchy have official Twitter and Instagram accounts, run by the social media teams of their households, which do not normally feature personal tweets or posts.
Markle will come under Kensington Palace after her wedding and social media postings will be made on her behalf by its communications staff.
