TAIPEI (The China Post) – When it comes to social media, who do you think is the most popular online celebrity? Following an official Instagram account launch on April 2, record-breaking Sussex Duke and Duchess Harry and Meghan gained 237,000 likes for their first post. They even accumulated 1 million followers on Instagram within only 6 hours to be the fastest, according to the Guinness World Records.
Yet another thing of paramount importance in the audience’s eyes is Meghan’s little baby about to add to the royal family. Hours after the release of their joint account, many followers and netizens have begun to speculate about the topic — Is Meghan having a girl or boy? What are the possible names?
Former actress Meghan closed most of her personal accounts on social media prior to her marriage to Harry to secure information and maintain the royal prestige. However, the public hopes that the duo will break news on the Instagram account when their little one arrives this month.
Subsequent to a first-ever Instagram post made by 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth in March, Harry and Meghan posted a series of photos very recently to introduce their lives to a billion of contemporary “Instagramers”.
The profile of the account is a blue monogram with entwined white initials H and M representing the royal duo, and the first post — a photo gallery of 10 — featured their trips to Australia and Fiji, historical moments of Prince Harry served his military career, a never-before-seen snap of them holding hands in an address to Fijian citizens on a balcony, and more.
The Instagram launch also represented the couple’s split of households and social media accounts from William and Kate, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Renowned celebrities David Beckham, Blake Lively, and Gwyneth Paltrow are the early followers among the 4.1 million to date.
“Welcome to our official Instagram; we look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements, and the opportunity to shine a light on key issues. We thank you for your support, and welcome you to @sussexroyal,” Harry and Meghan wrote on the caption under their first post in an effort to communicate with the modern world.
