In preparation for becoming the first Duchess of Sussex when she ties the knot with Prince Harry in spring 2018, Meghan Markle deleted all of her social media accounts.

Not known for their transparency, the British royal family limits communication with their millions of supporters worldwide to two main social media accounts– Kensington Palace Twitter and Kensington Royal Instagram. Along with serving up some solid snaps of Kate Middleton’s impressive coat collection, the accounts provide royal stans a steady stream of updates from Kensington Palace as well as the latest news involving The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and their Royal Foundation.

In what proved to be a crushing blow to Markle’s 1.9 million Instagram and 350,000 Twitter followers, Kensington Palace stepped up to officially confirm the wipe as a result of Markle’s upcoming entrance into the royal family. 
“Ms. Markle is grateful to everyone who has followed her social media accounts over the years but has closed them as she has not used these accounts for some time,” said a spokesperson for Kensington Palace

Thankfully, the official social media accounts dedicated to capturing the gilded life of the royal family now includes updates on Markle in their feeds. As seen on Twitter, Prince Harry and fiancee Markle recently traveled to Brixton to visit Reprezent Radio and “see their work supporting young people through creative training in radio and broadcasting.”

Although she already is a Hollywood queen, by adhering to the trends set by Kensington Palace Markle really is one step closer to becoming IRL royalty.
