We found out earlier this year that Princes William and Harry will officially be separating their households, meaning that the Sussexes (Meghan and Harry) will move out of Kensington Palace and into Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. Harry and Megs haven’t made the physical move just yet, but they officially started their own separate Instagram today, which in 2019, is basically the same thing.
The Kensington Royal account — which was formerly the source for all Cambridge and Sussex news — announced Tuesday morning that going forward, the Kensington account will only post the doings of William and Kate, while Meghan and Harry’s activities will be covered on the brand new Sussex Royal account.
The new Sussex account bears Harry and Meghan’s official monogram and their first post highlights nine key photos of the couple including the two meeting admirers together, Harry doing anti-poaching charity work and Meghan meeting with survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire last year. Since its creation, the account has been gaining followers at an immeasurable rate with tens of thousands jumping on board every minute.
We’re sure every photo included in the post was chosen carefully and deliberately and — while trying not to get too tinfoil-hat about it — one in particular stands out as intriguing. The seventh photo is one of Meghan that went viral back in October for the fact that it highlighted the thigh-high slit in her dress. Some people thought the dress was unbefitting for a Duchess while many others came to her defense. The Palace rarely comments on media drama but it would appear that the inclusion of this photo in an official announcement shows their support for Meghan’s wardrobe choices. So haters, back off!

Thank you to everyone at Kingfisher Bay Resort Jetty on Fraser Island that came out to welcome The Duke and Duchess of Sussex today! Their Royal Highnesses were greeted at the Jetty by the Premier of Queensland, Annastacia Palaszczuk, before they met the locals by the beach. #RoyalVisitAustralia #Australia #FraserIsland
It’s a little sad that this splitting of the Instagrams really means the end of a brotherly era, but we can only assume it means we’ll be getting more Meghan and Harry (and soon, Baby Sussex!) content, which isn’t such a bad thing.
