The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan have un-followed the Cambridge’s on social media account.
They’ve also swapped likes on royal cousin Princess Eugenie’s account for celebrities including Lady Gaga and Oprah. But this isn’t a royal rift or feud fuelling the follows on social media.
Instead, it’s a strategic play Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made for Mental Health Awareness Month. They are following just 16 accounts, all of whom highlight mental health initiatives they support or would like to promote.
Well, it’s quite a nice move.
So, instead of getting updates on Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles through Clarence House’s page, the parents-to-be will see Instagram posts from actress-turned-body positive campaigner, Jameela Jamil. And instead of seeing The Queen’s latest pictures, they will follow the progress of the Aussies behind ‘The Man Cave’.

“Just woke up to be told that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan follow me on Instagram. They only follow 16 people. Why would they follow me? I annoy even myself on there. Pretty sure I will be un-followed within a week”.
There were a few more among the list.
The royal couple, Harry and Meghan, who are soon going to have their first child with them, will also be inspired by Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sessions. And not to forget, Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.
And secretly, they’re still following the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate. Well, sort of, one of the 16 accounts they’re highlighting is The Royal Foundation’s Heads Together charity. And, it is fronted by ‘The Fab Four’.
