And we can't deal.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially split from Kate Middleton and Prince William to start their own royal household, something that was reinforced this week by their Instagram split.

Yes, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the Kensington Royal Instagram account that they shared with Prince William and Kate Middleton to start their own page this week, SussexRoyal.

And while the account has been live for less than a week, they have already raked up over two million followers, breaking a record for gaining followers so speedily, a title that was previously held by the Pope.

‘Welcome to our official Instagram,’ Harry and Meghan posted as their first snap, alongside a gallery of images showing their past journey. ‘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’.

Royal fans hoped for loved up snaps and never before seen sweet moments, something that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave us in week one of their new profile.

Sharing a gallery of photos to mark the premiere of David Attenborough’s Our Planet, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared a rare throwback photo of their travels to Botswana when they were dating.

‘Their Royal Highnesses travelled to Botswana to assist Dr. Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders in equipping a bull elephant with a satellite collar,’ the couple captioned the sweet snap. ‘Approximately 100 elephants are poached/killed every day for their ivory tusks.’

‘The elephant pictured was sedated for just 10 minutes before he was up and back with his herd. Tracking his movements has allowed conservationists to better protect him and other elephants and ensure heightened protection for these beautiful creatures moving forward.’

SussexRoyal is swiftly becoming one of our favourite Instagram accounts ever.
