The Duke of Sussex has proudly been patron of UK based organization Well Child since 2007. Over 100,000 children and young people are living with serious illness or exceptional health needs across the UK. Many spend months, even years in hospital vs at home because there is no support enabling them to leave. Well Child’s vision is for every child and young person living with serious health needs to have the best chance to thrive properly supported at home with their families. Both the Duke and Duchess attended the Well Child Awards in the winter of 2018, supporting the incredible families and children who benefit from the Well Child programs. For those who have inquired, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex ask that you consider supporting @wellchild and three other select charities in lieu of sending baby gifts for their upcoming arrival. Thank you for the support and kindness! Photos via: @wellchild #worldhealthday
On 2nd April 2019, yet another Guinness World Record was shattered on Instagram by, wait for it, the royals! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry opened their joint account @sussexroyal. Within six hours after its debut post, the account already gained one million followers. And as per Guinness World Records, that is the quickest any account has ever reach the ‘one million’ milestone. And by the time the account put up three posts, they already had 3.5 million followers.
Their debut post read,
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 & Meghan
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have always made sure they foster a close relationship with their followers, even through social media. They also put up a post about the #GlobalSussexBabyShower too, which is a fan-led initiative to donate to the charities that are favored by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. This is in honour of their first child, who is due sometime later this month. And, there’s also a high possibility that the couple may announce the birth of their first baby on their Instagram account. We’ll surely be keeping an eye out for that!

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️
Last year in January, Meghan had deleted her social media account before the royal wedding. And we’re happy to have her back on Instagram, of course with Prince Harry too! Have you checked out their account yet? Let us know what you think about it in the comments below.
