And, they’re out. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have zero plans to use social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook again after amassing 10 million+ Instagram followers when they were working royals.
A source close to them told The Times of London that social media doesn’t have any part of what they see as their “progressive role” in the U.S.; they also became disillusioned with the “hate” they were met with on social media.
Their charity, Archewell, will also not have a presence on social media. TBD if accounts will be set up for any of their multimillion projects with Netflix and Spotify.
In October, Meghan spoke out against social media: “I've made a personal choice to not have any account, so I don't know what's out there, and many ways that's helpful for me. I have a lot of concerns for people that have become obsessed with it. And it is so much a part of our daily culture for so many people that it's an addiction like many others. There are very few things in this world where you call the person who is engaging with it a user.”
