This is not a drill. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are officially on the ‘gram…

It’s about time Prince Harry and Meghan Markle launch their own Instagram account. Ever since the pair announced their engagement in November 2017 – eventually tying the knot in a beautiful, star-studded ceremony in May 2018 – all eyes have been glued on the royal duo, watching their every move and analysing all of the fashion (obviously).

So, you can imagine the excitement swarming MOJEH HQ when we found out that we can easily keep up with the two – especially now that the pair are expecting their first child (any day now…).

We’ll be getting news and updates straight from Prince Harry and Meghan’s very own handle, @sussexroyal.

“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,” read the caption, written and signed by “Harry & Meghan”.

Officially joining the digital sphere overnight, the royal duo’s new social media venture has, in fact, already broken a world record.

Yep, that’s right.

Their first post of 10 hand-picked photos is indeed delightful to see, however, they’ve broken the world record with something else. The pair scooped up the Guinness World Record for ‘Fastest Time To Gain One Million Followers On Instagram’ in just six hours! Now, they’re just over two million (but who’s counting?) in just 16 hours.

Previously, the record holder was Kang Daniel from South Korea – who garnered a cool one million in 11 hours.

Oh what a difference the royals can make!

We are following them ASAP…

Now, find out how Lebanese director Nadine Labaki made history (yet again).
