Here's what we know so far...

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially split from Kate Middleton and Prince William to start their own royal household, something that has prompted rumours of feuds and fallouts, with the public fearing for the future of the Fab Four.

The speculation only rose this week when Meghan and Harry and Kate and Wills split from each other on Instagram, something that any millennial will know, is serious.


While the Fab Four had originally had the KensingtonRoyal account as their profile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has of this week created an Instagram account for just the two of them (and their little bump), SussexRoyal.

‘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’.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have since changed the profile picture of the KensingtonRoyal account, which was previously a snap of the four royals, to a family photo of the Cambridges. Not to mention, there are even rumours that the Instagram handle may soon change to reflect the Cambridge family, rather than Kensington Palace as a whole.

While there were fears of ruptures in the royal family, Princess Eugenie, known to be close to both couples, quashed the rumours immediately, posting a loved up photo of Harry and Meghan to Instagram along with a sweet celebratory caption.

‘Welcome cousins,’ she posted, being one of the first to personally welcome the couple to Instagram on their own account.

Thankfully, it looks like there’s no hard feelings with the Cambridges either, who also took to their Kensington Royal account to greet the royal couple.

‘Welcome to Instagram, @SussexRoyal!,’ Kensington Palace posted alongside a photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. ‘Follow @SussexRoyal for more on the work of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Follow @KensingtonRoyal for more on the work of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.’

The Instagram split makes sense now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are uprooting to Windsor to make Frogmore Cottage their new home, but fans are still finding it a bit sad.

Fab Four forever.
